We are making Anything but a card for the Sweet Stamps challenge this week.
I made my daughter a name hanger for her classroom, she found the original idea on Pintrest made out of wood. I cut out a piece of cardboard 17" long x 5" wide. I covered it with cardstock- Lt to Rt- Pink, Metallic Silver, So Saffron and White.
For the pink section, I added color direct to paper swiping the ink onto the paper. Over the metallic cardstock, I added a couple of strips from the Braided Borders Globecraft Piccolo set. They are quick and easy to emboss using the adhesive and then adding Siam Silver Enamel EP.
Over the So Saffron cardstock, I sponged So Saffron ink through the 'Backsplash' 6x6 stencil. Next, the cardstock was scored long ways 1.5" in from both edges,which you can see if you enlarge the picture. I used a 1 1/4" punch for the side edges and a 1 3/4 punch for the center section of the bottom edge, then hand trimmed that a bit, I added the text using and old Alphabet set I bought for the Cuttlebug way back when..........
The last section is a white piece of cardstock that I dragged a Shades Die Ink spot over the cardstock- direct to paper- in Beach, then added a few stripes in Latte for some depth. I added the black tip to the end of the pencil and that is it.
In case she wants to hang it up, I sent a little bit of ribbon along too.
My daughter is back from teaching from China for three years- so nice to have her on American soil and teaching in the same state : )
