You Make the Grade

This week’s Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps challenge is hosted by Kim O.  She wants us to use FALL COLORS!! Well, I guess it is officially fall as of today, so let's get into the spirit!! Don't you love the cooler temperatures, going for walks in woolly sweaters and watching the leaves turn?? SO much fun! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. We hope you can play along!!!to use fall colors.

As a teacher, fall screams “back to school” to me, so I used Bookworm Jaime along  with this week’s Mojo Monday sketch for my challenge card.  I started off with a piece of apple patterned paper I found in my stash. The paper’s colors seemed like a good fall combination, especially with a school-themed image. I colored Jaime with Copic markers, then carefully cut her out. She’s attached to a golden yellow panel with foam tape.

I used a few different colors of solid cardstock for the layered elements to the right of the image panel so that the card wouldn’t be too busy. To add interest, I used my Lacy Circles dies to create a doily-like circle from kraft cardstock for one of the pieces and attached a strip of dotted decorative tape to the green paper strip before adding them to the card. Once the pieces were in place, I stamped the “you make the grade” sentiment that comes with the Miss Information image in red ink on a notch-ended kraft strip and attached it to the card underneath Jaime’s feet. I accented the strip with a twine-tied button.
