Lots of Love Back to School Notes

Hello bloggers!  I'm back again for the first August challenge over at the Cameo Creations Challenge blog.  The theme of this challenge is back to school, hosted by our very own DT sister Lisa, and the prize is $10 GC towards the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons store. 


The two cards are for my two kids. I'm hoping to sneak the cards in their binders when they go back to school in a couple of weeks.  The base of the cards was achieved by using the offset feature on the scalloped circle that was from an image by Alaa' K (Design ID #37639) and welding two together.  I let the Silhouette Studio do the faux stitching for me with pink for my daughter and blue for my son.  I embossed the pink scalloped circle with the flowers design from one of the Once Upon a Princess CB folders, while the blue scalloped circle was embossed with the Oriental Weave CB folder.  the little red heart was embossed with the Swiss Dots CB folder.  I attached some twine around the white heart in the front, choosing to leave off the bow on the blue and white card.  I used some foam mounts here and there for some dimension.  

Here are the inside of the cards.  The sentiment was typed using the Abbeyline font.  The heart image is by Donna Downey (Design ID #32494).  I again let the Silhouette Studio do the faux stitching, this time on the inside of the cards.   

Below are pictures of the cards with their respective envelopes (envelope image by Lori Whitlock Design ID #29070).  I used the Choppin Script font for the sentiment on my daughter's envelope, while the sentiment for my son's envelope was achieved using Graffiti Treat font.  I used the same image by Alaa' K for the front of the cards and used the sketch feature, as you can see on the right corners of the envelopes.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.  And now that I'm back from vacation I hope to make my regular rounds of visiting my blogging friends' sites very soon.  And I'm also hoping to see what you link up at Cameo Creations Challenge this month.  Have a wonderful day!

Love the cards and those envelopes are just as cute! I might have to borrow this idea for my kids-Emert starts Kindergarten. Of course he is so excited and I'm the one all teary eyed-I might need the card more than him!
