Every Book is an Adventure


Morning, all! Kristina here with a card and video. :)

It's Back to School month here at Simon Says Stamp, so today's card is school related. To play off the "Every Book is an Adventure" sentiment stamp, I created a line of books by cutting strips of cardstock. It's a super easy paper piecing, but it has great impact.

I also embossed a TON on this card. The tone on tone clear embossing made those areas interesting without becoming busy. With all those books, I wanted to make sure the rest of the card was fairly "quiet."

Anyhow, enjoy!

Oh, and be sure to add your school related cards and creations to the Back to School Gallery. :)

    I love it, love it, love it!! I am an avid reader (a book at least a day, if not more) This was so cute and creative & I like the detailing without it being to busy. Liking the quote too, going to have to pick up that stamp set.
