I Heart School

It's a new month already - happy August High Hopes Fans! 
For the month of August the High Hopes Design Team will be using older stamps with a Fall/Halloween Theme. 
Back to School is part of fall and with that in mind I chose to use "Mouse Tales". How cute is this little guy with his nose buried in a book! 

Close Up

I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers cut it out using a square die. I cut my base blue cardstock just slightly smaller then my finished card size and ran it through an embossing folder. I used the depressed side instead of the side that is puffy - just for something different and fun. I inked all my paper edges with grey ink.
The curvy edge was also cut using a die and I matched the curve on the striped paper as well just for fun. The sentiment was created using a heart die and a font set of stamps. Twin finishes of my card.
