Middle School

Make The Cards Challenge #62

The theme for with the Make the Cards Challenge #62 group is School or Teacher. OMG our grandson is heading to 6th grade and middle school on Monday. OMG!!! How quickly time as flown by for this to happen. So proud of Chase and all his accomplishments. It is getting more difficult to make cards for pre-teens so I opted to go with his school mascot and his school initials. Stinger the Hornet was printed from the school’s website on both copy paper and vellum and glued together for more depth of color. I then die cut Stinger using Spellbinders circle nestabilities die and die cut a green circle using GKD’s circle dies. These two sets work nicely together. The speech bubble and sentiment is als Gina K Designs Let’s Talk stamp set. The school colors are green and gold and the letters were die cut from Concord & 9th’s Double Cut Alphabet dies. The background was embossed with Tim Holtz “The Journey” embossing folder which is a combination embossing folder, stamps and dies.

Very timely challenge and a fun card to make. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care, be safe and YES, I’m still staying STAY COOL.

P.S. I think my letters even look straight!!! LOL

  1. OMG! This is adorable. Your grandson will love it. Oh yes, teenage boy cards can be a challenge, but you met the challenge very well here.

    1. Thanks, Gerry, it will be challenging go forward with cards for the grands as they get older. I’ll have to remember to try to make more age appropriate cards. Hope Im still doing this so I can send them some snarky cards to enjoy! LOL.

  2. What a great take on the challenge Gayle. he will love it I’m sure. I like the colour combo and how you put the letters and speech bubble together. I passed on this challenge as I’m not into school or teachers.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, some themes don’t work for everyone. I was happy to found an idea for my pre-teen guy.

  3. I’m sure your Grandson will love your card Gayle. I agree pre-teens are very hard to create cards for but you have done a great job
