Inge and Claudia Challenge - Back To School




Again.. lots and lots of pictures to share :-) usually i do not like to post 2 days in a row a card that's using the same sketch or same paper, but i really loved the shape of this card. i "modify" the shape and add "a little box" so it could be used to hold some teacher gifts like pencils, scissors or even some crayons for a girl set.
Since my card is for my friend Inge (make sure to check out her "Back To School" Challenge set) I choose more feminine papers and embellishments

Here is a close up shot of the bottom so you can see the "box". Since i had to add a "lip" in the back of the card i covered the back also with DP and personalized it. The matching card is quite small only 5.25 x 5.25, so it could be tucked into the box. I was able to use up all my little scraps that i had produced by making this card :-)
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda,
Sentiment "Stampin up" and computer
Papers: Stampin up (DP is retired)
Embellishement: Stickles (on the scallops and inside the roses), Prima Marketing (Mulberry roses), Stampin up (all hardware, all ribbons), Pearl stickers
Tools: Fiskars Apron border punch, Stampin up scalloped border punch

This card is also for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge blog "Back to School". Make sure to swing by.. we have an other fantastic sponsor for this week.
