School Time: You Rule Rainbow Ruler Background Card

Hi there!  Did you get a chance to check out all the amazing inspiration from our blog hop yesterday?  It was thrilling for me to see these talented ladies which I greatly admire creating beautiful projects with stamps I designed!  I still can't believe it's real.  I was equally touched by all the sweet comments that were left--Thank you for making our debut such a success!  You have made my heart happy!  If you didn't have time to take a look yesterday, there's still time to hop along and comment for your chance to win one of three stamp sets.  :)

With back to school still fresh on everyone's mind, I have another card to share from the School Time stamp set.  For this card I stacked the rulers to create a rainbow background using various colors of distress ink.  To make lining up everything easier I stamped them individually and cut them out (which was super quick with my paper trimmer since they are all straight lines).


To finish of my card front, I stamped the notebook paper image and stamped the sentiment over the top with red ink.  I then punched them out using a circle punch and adhere the circle to a basic metal rimmed tag I purchased at an office supply store.

For the twine I wrapped my card front a couple times with it and then knotted it behind where the tag would go, cutting off the excess. I then popped up my tag with foam tape on either side of the tag (leaving a small channel where the twine would sit) and tied a separate bow around the tag.  This gives the appearance that my tag was tied onto the card, but without all the fuss of trying to get my bow just right.


I'll back tomorrow with one last School Time card.  Until then, I hope you have a wonderful day!  :)
