Scrapbooking layouts are so much fun to create but so are handmade cards. That’s what we love about 12 x 12 paper – you can use it in so many ways. Today, we bring you 3 creative school spirited cards to get you ready for the school year. The paper from this collection creates designs that are beautiful, colorful, and very creative. Check them out:
- You Did It Card by Maria Potapovich
This card it a great way to congratulate a recent graduate. The Pop Quiz paper collections has a wonderful set of designed papers that are theme specific but also simply patterned to create a beautiful look. Here, you see the designer used calm, subtle colors for the background paper layered with element cutouts from the same collection. Also, the layered effect of element cutouts on the card is easily achieved using 3D foam square stickers. If you don’t have any, go get some — these little guys add beautiful height and dimension for layering.
- Check Me Out Card by Maria Potapovich
This card uses a bit more bold colors. But you can see that, again the designer uses a layer technique with the element cutouts for the card. You can also layer the background papers to create some lift and dimension. She even uses real paper clips in this design to add a bit of real touch to the card. The colors, patterns, and cutouts may not seem like they can work well together on one project but this collection will surprise you.
- Best Teacher card by Tracee Provis
Here’s a classic school-theme card that we just love. There is so much creativity in this card. The multiple layers of paper used for the background along with the custom apple cutout screams back to school. The ruled paper serves as a bordering background in two different ways. This is really unique and a beautiful technique you can use to bring a project together.
