i {heart} papers 1,2,3 Design Team Challenge


Every month the i {heart} papers design team does a challenge. This month with the kids all heading back to school, our challenge was called 1,2,3. The rules were to use one sentiment stamp, two embellishments, and three layers. I decided to make a back to school teacher card. My sentiment is from the Our Craft Lounge Bookworm set. The three layers are PTI Kraft, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Grey Sugared. For the embellishments I used May Arts brown satin ribbon and a star punch. I thought I would also make a cute little bookmark to go along with the card! The apple template can be found here.

Check out what all the other design team members came up with!

I LOVE a 1-2-3 challenge, and this apple is fabulous, Cathleen! TFS! to answer your question, RedDivas is a group of us who love RED, and anytime we make a RED card, we put RedDivas in our keyword to put it in that gallery. We invite anyone to join us who makes a RED card. Simple!
