For most of us, the start of school is near or has already happened. In my famuly, we have a preschooler, a kindergartner, and 2 second graders. And, 3 of the 4 ride a bus to school. This Grandma wanted to acknowledge this milestone with a card of course!
Although I created 4 cards, one for each of the kids, I am only showing 2 because they are all basically the same. I started with a Whisper White Notecard.
The names were created using the Little Letters Thinlits & Basic Black Cardstock. It's the first time that I have used the letters and what a surprise. They are so easy to work with and they produce a nice size letter.
After scouring the Stampin' Up! catalog for a school bus, I came across a way to create one using the photopolymer What's Your Type stamp set. Lining up photopolymer stamps is so easy! Thanks to Theartfulinker.com for the idea. Of course, I had to add my own touches too.
My road was created with the ever so useful stamp set - Gorgeous Grunge. It was an afterthought so it was stamped after the bus was in place on my card. But, it worked just fine – whew!
The wheels on the bus go round and round with Regals Candy Dots in the center.
The envelope gets some special attention from the Envelope Liners Framelits & piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Regals Designer Paper Stack. If I just knew how to draw, my bus could be filled with children.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
STAMPIN' UP! SUPPLIES USED!
VERY INGENIOUS!and very cute. The Kids will like them, especially bearing their name. Good job Ginger.
You are so clever! Love this card thanks for sharing!
No wonder you are head of the class! This is so cool using that set for the bus and the grunge for the road! I still have my truck set with where you put the people and dog in the cab and fill the back end with stuff. I wonder if the people would have worked size-wise? Love the idea of having their name on them. This would look so adorable on a scrapbook page for the first day of school! Well done!
Ging – You out did yourself!! This card is so cute! The kids will love them!
