Exam time coming

Here in the UK our school children of all ages are approaching the dreaded exams, be they SATS, GCSE’s or A levels. When I saw the image for the current Progressive Challenge on the Art By Mi Ran Facebook page I thought ‘school girl’.

Materials used: SAM_2814(watermarked)
Art By Miran – Sweet Sally  (available in store after challenge ends or from Facebook page)
Sonya De Hart – School Days
Sonya De Hart – Back To School
X-Press It card
white A5 card blank
white printer card
Little B Handwritten die set
Spellbinders A2 Fancy Postage Edge Card Creator die set
snippet black card

I printed out the image at the required size on the X-Presss It card and coloured it in with copics then fussy cut it out.

I printed out the background papers and elements I wanted to use onto white printer paper and trimmed them to the required sizes, die cutting the lined paper with the Fancy Postage Edge die and cutting out a black ‘congrats’ with a Little B die.

Finally I assembled all the elements onto my card blank.

I left the lined paper background blank but you could easily write a personalized message on it.

If you have children approaching exams or are a teacher I hope all goes smoothly and as stress free as possible.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Such a fun card! Those papers are fabulous with your sweet image!

    PS Is your banner really the view from your craft room?! Gorgeous!! I hope you don’t take it for granted. 🙂

      Sadly the banner is not what I can see through my window, it’s actually a local National Trust property which we love going to when we have a day off! The veiw from my window is of the church roof and next doors large pond with giant carp in it! Still beautiful but not so much as Stourhead.
