Hitting the Books

Hello all! Here is a card that I made using one of the new stamps from Whiff of Joy Stamps' Back 2 School collection.

I feel a little weird to be posting back to school cards when the summer vacation just started for most kids. LOL! Well, never too early to have them ready, right? =)

This stamp is called Hitting the Books and it's stamped on Copic X-Press It cardstock then colored with Copic markers. The image is then cut and embossed using a Labels 12 die. The sentiment piece is cut using the Versatile Shape I die from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

The patterned paper is from the Sweet Threads collection by Basic Grey. The sentiment comes with this stamp.

That's all for now. Have a happy Hump Day! =)
