Mint Motif August Reveal: School Basics

Today the School Basics set from Mint Motif will be available to purchase, from i{heart}papers of course!
I am sharing another card that I made with this set.  I was inspired by a memory I had of doodling on my school paper in Jr. High.  Being a teenager in the 80's, I never would have thought all of those trends would ever be back.  But they are, and in a big way.  Silly bands are just a reinvention of the colored plastic bracelets we wore.  The long tunics and stretchy pants.  Anyhow, I digress, back to the card hee!
I have a 6x6 pad of the Basic Grey Basics pattern paper, so I took a piece out, and punched along the top, to create notebook paper.  I stamped the solid image apple, and the handwriting lines in red ink.  Then I created the sentiment and stamped it inside the lines.  I wanted to have it kind of look like, that I was writing the sentiment with a pencil.  I stamped the pencil & colored it in with copic markers, then I took a grey multi liner pen, and doodled from the pencil tip to the first letter of the sentiment.  I also doodled above and around the apple.  To finish off the card, I wrapped some twine around the panel, tied a pretty bow, and adhered the panel to the card base using foam tape.
For more inspiration and eye candy using this set, take a visit to the rest of the designers!
