Make it Monday #178: Back to School Easel Card

Papertrey Ink's Erin Lincoln has challenged us this week to make an easel card, in honour of school starting this week. However, here in BC, the teachers' strike had delayed the start of school. But it will start at some point, right? So I made this card for my granddaughter, and will send it off to her once the strike is over. This card looks quite a bit like Erin's, so it's defiinitely a "Case", but her card was inspiring :)
PTI products used:
Stamps: Back to School, Teacher Tickets, Antique Alphabet
Inks: Fresh Snow, Pure Poppy, Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse
Dies: Back to School, Stargazer Additions (stars)


  1. Amber's gonna love her special card when she finally gets her first day at school

  2. Be still my skipping heart! Who would know more about creating a school card ♥ !!!! Superb! I love the texture of the wood and the stamped images look so much like when I was little and in school. Then you topped it off with gold stars and apples - best card from grandma award :D !!!

  3. How cute for Amber! Love the personal touch to your granddaughter, and the woodgrain easel.

  4. this is so adorable and a perfect card for someone starting school. I hope this strike is over soon too :)
