Back to School cards!

Hey all!  It's Jessica here with some fun little back to school cards that I put together. 

I was thinking that it would be fun to have some little cards ready to go for when I needed to send a thank you note to the teacher or for when I wanted to put a nice note in a lunch box for one of the boys.

The elements and papers are all from a pad by Echo Park called "School Daze."  I saw it at the LSS and fell in love, so it came home with me :)

I used my Xyron to attach everything and layered some of the embellishments with some foam adhesive that I made with my Xyron.

There are some Karen Foster brads and Twinery Twine in there too.  I love the look twine adds to a card!

This is a close-up of my back to school apples :)  I stamped the solid apple from the Sweet to the Core set in red then I stamped over it with the Love Knots stamp and brown ink.  I really like the texture this added to the apples.

I hope you're enjoying your summer (and school too, if you're already back like we are).  Be sure to stop by out Facebook page for info about contests and prizes!

I love the idea of the woodgrain stamp on the apple!
