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.
