The challenge at Tilda's Town this week is to create a Back to School card. This was very fun and easy - no big flower bouquets, no fancy ribbons - just several Magnolia images and cute designer papers.
I think this DP is from Stampin' Up!, not sure.
I used the Maggie House No. 9 as it looked like a school house to me.
Tilda and Edwin are sitting on the New Bench waiting for the teacher to announce that it was time to begin class. All images are colored with Copics. The tag was cut with the Doohickey die Vintage Tag and inked with SU Pacific Point.
The sentiment was computer generated.
The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
This is the inside left panel. The "chalkboard" was made by just gluing four Crumb Cake strips to the edge of the piece cut from the DCWV Grade School stack.
The "Welcome" banner was cut with Poppystamps Simple Banner die.
The School Desk and Garden Chair are older Magnolia stamps.
The images were colored with Copics.
The banner letters were stamped with SU Pacific Point ink.
This "chalkboard" is another sheet from the Grade School stack. I just thought they looked like a "first day" greeting and had lots of bright colors in them!
The images are Autumn Tilda with Pencils and an older Maggie - Tilda with Pencils - and colored with Copics.
Here is a picture of the full open inside.
It does look like a cheery, welcoming school room!!
I am entering this card in the Tilda's Town challenge - Back to School.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this has brought back some good memories of the first day of school for you.
