Class Act Card

Combined efforts with The Creative Pointe to create this "Class Act" card featuring Friday's School Girl digital stamp.  I love how perfectly is Cindy's School House complements our little school girl!  You can pick up this SVG file for FREE at The Creative Pointe.

The Details:
  • The School House SVG was cut from scraps of red, black, and yellow papers/cardstock.  Instead of using the base layer, I added crinkled Tim Holtz kraft glassine behind the windows and door opening.  I like the vintage-y look this gives it.  I then outlined the bell, doors, and windows in black pen and added shading with distress inks/stains and an aqua pen.
  • The School Girl digital stamp was printed on kraft cardstock and sunflower print patterned paper.  I love paper piecing dresses on my digital stamps...so much easier and prettier than trying to create that pattern through coloring!  I added color and shading/highlight with marker, distress inks/stains, and an aqua pen.  She's attached to the card with foam tape for extra dimension between her and the school house.
  • The path was cut from a scrap of kraft cardstock using deckle edge scissors, then shaded with Vintage Photo DI.
  • The notebook paper and tape section was cut from a K&Co Trinket tag and shaded with Old Paper DI.  I hand lettered "You're A Class Act!" in brown Le Pen.
