Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a Back to School card created for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #131- Change a Scene. When I was young, I remember the first day back to school was always nerve wrecking especially the years when I was starting a new school. So for this Challenge, I created a cheery back to school card wishing students and teachers a great year ahead!
For the chalkboard, I inked two pieces of Black Cardstock with Chalk ink. I then prepped two pieces with an anti-static brush. I white heat embossed the two chalkboard pieces with sentiments and images from Reveal Wheel, Happy Village, and Plan On It: School. I die cut the two pieces using the two Magic Picture Change dies. I then weaved the two pieces together to make the Magic Picture mechanism (A).
For the background, I die cut a piece of White Cardstock using the Magic Picture Add-On (above right) which I will label (B). I wanted to make the the opening rectangular to resemble the shape of a blackboard so I placed the second smallest rectangle die from Outside In Stitched Rectangles (above left) on top of the (B) and ran it through the die cut machine again. I placed (B) on top of an A2 size White Cardstock (C) and ink blending using Mermaid, Lemonade, Peach Fuzz, and Grape Jelly ink with the Brick Stencil. I then adhered (B) on top of (A) and then the two on top(C).
I added a wooden frame around the chalkboard using 4 pieces of Light Woodgrain Cardstock and inked the edges using Doe ink.
I stamped and die cut the critters, books, and stools. I coloured the images with Copic Markers listed below. I added a stool die cut from Light Woodgrain Cardstock using the stool die from the Canvas and Easel set.
The Challenge is open until September 4th at 11:59pm ET. All entries will have a chance to win a $50 Lawn Fawn gift certificate and you will also have a chance to be featured in the Lawn Fawnatics Blog!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you like my card 🙂
