I wasn't liking this card as I was making it but I kept with it and now that its all done, I love it!! I showed my husband last night and his response was WOW :-), so that definitely made me feel better that I kept going and worked at it until I was happy with it! I think it will make a perfect graduation card to keep in my card stash!
I used Locker Talk for the books, but because of the layering on the cart, I had to cut the books 4 times to be able to make them all different colors - I'm glad I did because I really like the way it looks. I used Tim Holtz 'Pumice Stone' distress ink to ink them and make them look worn. The card base is DCWV, the yellow star paper is from DCWV 'All About Boys' stack and the rest of the cardstock is from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom of the blue cardstock, twine from The Twinery and the sentiment stamp (inside & out) is from CTMH.
I'm entering this into Challenge Me Monday #85 - Book Lover at Fantabulous Cricut and Week 22: Made It Myself Mondays weekly linking party at You Had Me at Craft.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!
