Your Next Stamp ⎜July Feature Day ⎜Card Video

Hello fellow card makers. Today is Feature Day and we were challenged to create our own background paper. My oldest daughter who has all A's and B's on her report card, except for Algebra, has to take summer school this year. It's a big "welcome to responsibility" for her. She is a good kid, who is just legitimately having trouble with math. So, I was inspired to create this card for her. I wanted to let her know that despite her having to go to summer school, that she is amazing.

I used the Your Next Stamp School Notes stamp set to create my background paper. Using the Misti for this really makes it easy. I stamped several of the images from the set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock with Your Next Stamp Black Olive Ink. I cut out that panel with the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then stamped a portion of the You Are Amazing sentiment from School Notes in versamark ink and heat embossed it with Zing's Charcoal embossing powder. I also cut this panel out with the stitched rectangles die set. My intention was to coloring the images on the background paper, but I really liked them back and white, so I didn't color them. Finally I white heat embossed the Amazing sentiment from What Not Sentiments eight and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. After some creative adhesive, my card is done.
