Back to School


It's Wednesday and you know what that means.  Yep, it's time for this week's Cricut Cardz Challenge where this week's challenge was to create a back to school themed card using any cartridge and colors we desired.  I knew that I didn't want to use an apple or a stack of books for this one but wasn't sure what I was going to use.  I started looking through Locker Talk - just flipping pages and then I came across the cut for the school building.....I've looked at and thought about using this particular cut before but never took the time to tackle it.......until now. 

For this card I used Locker Talk for the school.  The building pieces were also embossed using the Cuttlebug folder tiny mosaic texture and I then inked it over with Distress ink in fire brick red.  The tree top was embossed using the d'vine swirls folder and then inked over using Colorbox green and olive inks.

The children "playing" in the school yard were cut from A Child's Year.

Now that you've seen my card for this week's challenge why don't you create one and come play along with us?  You can find other cards created by our Design Team and a link to enter your card here.
