This morning Dave and I headed to Limestone at 5 a.m. to see our 5 year old granddaugther Kaitlynn off to her first day of Kindergarten. I can’t believe she is that grown up already. We had an almost 2 hour drive over. We decided to make a short day out of our work day so we came home early and I decided I “needed” to make a card. Merry Monday has this for an inspiration photo this week plus added instructions below the photo:
This week we have a photo for inspiration but you MUST use Red, Green and Kraft on your card
with a choice of Ribbon, Twine or Burlap!
Did I follow the instructions? The “Red” is “Real Red Cardstock”. The “Green” is “Gumball Green Cardstock”. The “Kraft” is “Crumb Cake Cardstock and Ink” and the “Ribbon” is “Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon”.
For the background I used the “Big Shot Machine” and the “Pretty Print Embossing Folder”:
The snowflakes and sentiment layers are “Vellum Cardstock” and “Shimmer White Cardstock”. For the white I stamped the image using the “Beautifully Baroque” stamp. I cut 3 snowflakes from the white and 2 from vellum using the “Festive Flurry Framelits Dies”:
- Cardstock: Real Red, Gumball Green, Vellum, Shimmer White
- Inks: Crumb Cake
- Stamps: Beautifully Baroque, Teeny Tiny Wishes
- Tools: Big Shot Machine, Festive Flurry Framelits Dies, Word Window Punch, Pretty Print Embossing Folder, Bird Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Boho Blossoms Punch
- Accessories: Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, Candy Dots
Here are a few photo’s of Kaitlynn’s first day of Kindergarten:
She held a sign like this last year for Pre-K and we plan to make this an annual event!
It was a little chilly this morning so we all had to wear our jackets. Here she is patiently waiting for bus #3!
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
