Heart 2 Heart ~ On the Border

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge theme is ON THE BORDER.  For this challenge you can interpret this in any way you see fit. The first thing I  thought about was using some border stamps or possibly our thin cuts.  Here is what I created.

I had this idea to design a back to school card for my son to give to his teacher on the first day of school.  I really love the stamp set Making the Grade and wanted to create with it. I love the writing lines stamp and had an idea to use this border stamp as the main focus.  I stamped it on Lemon, Willow, Bluebird, Candy Apple, and Nectarine Cardstock.  I also love the cute pencil, ruler and apple. I stamped these then fussy cut them and colored with my alcohol markers.  I then used my Silver Sequins and created a shaker.  I love how easy it is to create a shaker as you simply need Shaker Foam & Acetate and Thin Cut Shaker Window & Confetti.

I am also linking up with a couple challenges this week:

Double Trouble Challenge ~ for their Something Anything Challange.

Simon Says Challenge ~ Bright and Cheerful

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 3rd to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

  1. I love all the colourful borders (sort of “rulers”) that you used as the background for your card – they just emulate the back to school theme so perfectly. Terrific shaker and the apples add the element of cuteness – this is fabulous!

  2. Great colors and I wonder if kids even know what that paper is anymore…a lost art! Thanks for playing along with us at Double Trouble.
