MFT Wednesday Stamp Club - Teacher, have a Great Year

Well, like I said in my last post, I had one back-to-school teacher's card finished and one more to make. So I thought I would try my hand at the latest MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch! (See image at the bottom of the post.) I only have a couple of MFT sets so far (looking forward to getting more soon!), so I incorporated some school-themed PTI stamps as well. The patterned paper is Bo Bunny Learning Curve, an older line but full of fun, classic school-themed patterns!

I modified the sketch by turning it 90 degrees to make a horizontal card. I used MFT's Vanity License Plate stamps and die-namics die. I masked the "have a great day" sentiment to use just the "have a", and then added the "GR8 YR" letters to the plate. Since I don't have the MFT tab die (yet - it's on my wishlist!), I improvised by using the rounded corner rectangle die from First Class Friend as a "tab", letting it stick up behind my patterned paper.

I added the "first day of school" embellishment, created with PTI's Tag-It's #6 and School Time. I used It's Official to make the ruler border along the bottom, and added the Die-Namics Little Open Scallop along the bottom. Since this is a larger 5x7 card, I had to cut 2 of the scallop strips, but it worked out fine because I hid the overlap under my circle embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the MFT sketch:
