Back to School...

...for our favorite little mice!  Yes, school is starting back soon and it's time to think about those teacher "here's to a great year" cards.  Stampendous has celebrated all week with House-Mouse Designs® as we prepare for yet another school year!  Here's my card:

This is what I used to create this card:

DecoArt® Americana™ Clear Chalkboard Coating
Bazzill® Cardstock
Little Yellow Bicycle® Making the Grade
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Cover Stock in Solar White
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink® in Pine Needles
Krylon® Workable Fixatif
Sargent Art® Chalk
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™ 
Spectrum Noir Markers used:
  • GB2, GB4
  • FS9
  • CR2
  • TN1
  • EB1
  • IG1, IG3, IG4, IG5
  • CT2, CT4
  • TN5, TN7, TN9

Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp image on white cs, color and trim to desired size, edge with green ink
Create card base for a 5"x5" square card with a tent fold
Trim patterned papers as shown
Coat "chalkboard" patterned paper with chalkboard coating, allow time to dry
Write on "chalkboard" paper with chalk, spray with Fixatif, allow a few minutes to dry
Arrange patterned papers as shown, add paper clip and adhere all papers to card base
Adhere paperclips in lower corner
Add burgundy fragments

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card, I appreciate your visit.  Next week will be a busy one so please do stop by.  Dreamweaver Stencils is hopping with Woodware all week and Stampendous is featuring Authentique papers all week.  Yep, it's going to be a busy week in blogland!  Have a blessed day and I'll see you again soon!
