Ann Goes to School


My little granddaughter, Ann, is going to school!

Gosh, it seems like just yesterday she was a tiny little baby. Her school doesn't start until after Labor Day so I can get this card in the mail in time.

Yep, that's right...it's a card. It's called a Free Standing Pop-Up card and it folds flat for mailing. I used the adorable Lily from Pink Cat Studio. I just love her sweet face! She looks so innocent.
I know these aren't traditional school colors but they're Ann's favorite colors. Lily comes with lots of accessories but no school supplies so I used a stamp from Inkadinkadoo that has alot of school things on it. I cut them out and used dimensionals to add some of them to the base of the pop-up. The apple is shiny with Crystal Effects and I wrote her name on the book. I colored Lily with Prismacolor markers and placed the pencil in her hand. Her dress and the flower on it are lined with glitter pen although it doesn't show up in the photo.

Let me know if you like it. You can find the instructions to make your own here. If you do make one, link it here. I'd love to see it.

Supplies: Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, PCS Lily & Inkadinkadoo stamps, SU cardstock, Nana's Kids DP, Scalloped Circle punch, circle punches, Crop-a-dile, eyelet, ribbon, dew drops, Crystal Effects, dimensionals, glitter pen


Blessings and Happy Stamping!
