Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Back to School Card using Mama Elephant's Oh Hi Loopy Die Set and Dina Wakley's Block Alphas Stamp Set

Back to School is this week's theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I've been a kid, I've been a teacher and I've been a parent and I have to say that back to school time is my favorite as a parent!  I decided to make a card in honor of this wonderful return to academia.

I started with some patterned paper (Simple Stories Vintage Lemon Twist and Dina Wakley ledger sheets) and Mama Elephant's Oh Hi Loopy die set.

I assembled what I had so far, dabbed on some white paint, then decided to add a few more layers of patterned paper (Market Square and Color Study).  I taped the paper together and ran it through my die-cutter again, then glued it to the bottom of the loopy opening.  In retrospect, it would've been easier to make my paper collage and then die-cut the whole thing just once, but hindsight is 20/20 and I wasn't sure where I was going with the card at first.

I glued my colored portions down and added some washi tape and some paint in various colors.  Then I stamped and cut out the word "Learn" using Dina Wakley's Alpha Blocks stamp set.  I also cut a notebook edge using an Altenew die.  Once I had all the elements, I glued it together and my card was done.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
