Lisa V. challenged us to create a project using a card made by one of my all-time favorite designers, Dawn McVey, as inspiration. You can check out Lisa's challenge here. Please also stop by Dawn's blog and take a look at all her wonderful creations.
I decided to CASE Dawn's layout. I love how simple her layouts are. It's so easy to change one or two elements on her card and make something totally new. This card is for a wonderful teacher at my daughter's elementary school.
The first time I ever saw cork board used on a project that I liked was here on Dawn's blog. It inspired me enough to get some. I ordered mine from Stampin' Up.
I also love the Spiral Notebook die from Papertrey Ink. I cut it down so that it would fit within my cork board shape. Then, I used one of the images from MSS: Library Ledger to make it look like a mini binder paper. The green brad makes it look like it's tacked onto the cork board. I really like how it turned out.Here's how I finished the inside. I thought it would be fun to make it look like the Kindergarten writing paper. I used the apple image to connect the inside to the front.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
