Hello everyone! It's time for a brand new Jaded Blossom ~ Monthly Challenge. And this month the theme is: "Back to School".
I don't know about you, but when I was little - I was one of those kids who just LOVED back to school time!! As an adult, now I know it's just a little thing called OCD . . .lol. ;)
For my projects today, I decided to make a card and a fun little backpack surprise. Aren't they cute?! I just love how they turned out. The solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink. And the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Back to School collection.
First up is the card. I cut the background mat and the square center opening using the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies. Inside the opening, I added some super cute pencil stickers. (But I left the plastic attached to the back of them, so the little kiddo can pull them out for his/her own use). On the bottom left, I made a fun little ribbon using the Jaded Blossom ~ Scallop Circle Dies, the Jaded Blossom Stitched Circle Dies and the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2. The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Lunch Box Notes 2.
Next up is the surprise little backpack treat. I made this using the Jaded Blossom ~ Lollipop Die. I cut the square piece on the front using the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies. I cut the cutie patootie little apple using the SVG Cutting Files ~ Kawaii Nerd School. The label is cut using the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2. And the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ School Rocks.
