CYCI#83…Back To School

Today is Sunday and that means it’s time for the Can You Case It Challenge #83.  Our challenge this week was to create a card for “back to school”.  This is a great challenge and I hope you will go to and play along.  You have until noon Friday to submit your entry.

This was a fun card to make.  I always want to start back to school in the fall…


Kids today probably wouldn’t even know what that typewriter image was.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Heavy Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Real Red Cardstock and Schoolhouse DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black and Soft Sky plus Smoky Slate and Basic Black markers
  • Stamps:  Tap, Tap, Tap and Alphabet Roller
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Notebook Punch (retired), Tree Builder Punch (apple)


  • The Heavy Whisper White base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • The green layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″ attached to card front with adhesive
  • The Whisper White layer is 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ stamped at top with typewriter alphabet in Memento Black and attached to bottom of card front with adhesive
  • The Watermelon Wonder layer is 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ attached to bottom of Whisper White layer with multipurpose glue
  • The notebook page is stamped in Soft Sky and attached to card front with adhesive
  • The typewriter is stamped on scrap Whisper White, colored with Basic Black and Smoky Slate markers and “fussy cut”.  Attach with dimensionals
  • The apple is punched from Real Red cardstock with the Tree Builder Punch and attached to notebook sheet with dimensional.

Wouldn’t this be a fun card to send to someone just starting school?

Hope you enjoyed this little card.
