Not Your Typical Back-to-School Card

Hi everyone! I'm not going to lie--I want to do some online shopping, so I'm going to make this post short. ;)

It's the first CAS-ual Fridays challenge of the term, and we have four new designers. Woo hoo!


It's a two week challenge to share your back-to-school projects.

I have little kids, but I made a school card for an older girl:



Other than the stars, I did all of the design work myself. In Photoshop, I simply used different fonts and colors to create the sentiment. I love the scrolly font for the "punch." hee hee

For the stars, I recolored the star image from One Little Bird's Crazy for You digital kit. I thought the stars worked with the back-to-school theme.

Here's a close-up:


Yup. Pretty non-traditional for back-to-school.

Do you want to make a school project? The winner of this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge will win a gift certificate to Ellen Hutson.

Have a great weekend!
