Moving to 4th Grade

School for our grandson is officially over tomorrow! Such a strange world right now Chase has not been in his classroom since March but has been receiving lessons on line. He’s been getting used to a 4 day week since he finishes all his required work in that amount of time. My card for him was created using Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix “The Journey” which included the stamp set, dies and embossing folder. Using Bonnie’s advice, I inked the embossing folder and “stamped” my background. I decided on a shaker which is the two continents die cut. There’s not much shaking going on though. The sentiment is from GKD’s Oh Boy. So hard to believe that he will be 10 this year and entering 4th grade in the new school year. Fingers crossed that there will be a new school year!

Thanks for looking.

  1. Great card. I like the continental shakers. I’m sure he’ll love it and have fun with the shaker.

    1. Thanks, Judy, I actually liked how it turned out. There wasn’t a lot of room for shaker but I kind of like it.

  2. What a delightful creation for a boy. That is sometimes the hardest category of people to make cards for. Your use of EF stamping is impressive, but the world shaker steals the show.

    1. It does get harder to create cards for boys as they get older. I really liked inking up that embossing folder and “stamping” the impression with it. Thanks for the idea.

  3. This is an absolutely wonderful card for a boy. Love the shaker it shows the world beautifully.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, it’s getting harder to create boy cards as they get older. I always admire your cards featuring the world globe.

    1. Thanks, Golda, his school district already put out a plan with three different scenarios already.
