Welcome!

You may recall that last week I showed you a card I made for my co-worker who was leaving our school?  Well, the new gal who is replacing her started today, so I wanted to make a card to welcome her.  I dug through my retired stamps and found the First Day set from last year's summer mini catalog.  I just love this little worm reading a book!  I used the In Colors of Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzaz to make this card bright and cheery, accenting it with matching glitter brads.  I also took this opportunity to play with the new Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.  All I can say is "WOW"... I think I am going to be using this embossing folder a LOT as I love the depth it gave to the cardstock.  I also attempted to print "SPEECH" on the cover of the book, as that is our field of expertise.  I hope she likes it!

Stamps:  First Day
Ink:  Basic Black, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade
Accessories:  Ticket Corner Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, In Color Glitter Brads, Big Shot, Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals

Come back tomorrow to see what else I created to go with the card!
