For You

It's Ann here with a card I needed to make so I could give my nephew some money for his college books come next semester.  Zach is studying Pharmacy at WVU, and even though he has a scholarship to help pay for tuition, anyone with children in college knows how expensive books have gotten over the years.  

When I was browsing through the Dies R Us Store, I came across this embossing folder by Darice called School Books.  I have to admit it sat on my desk for a few months before I knew what I wanted to do with it.  I guess you can say I work better under pressure, and since Zach is going back to college in a few weeks, I knew I was running out of time.

I decided to replace the apple on the embossing folder with the Owl by Impression Obsession.  I cut one book and the pencil  from the embossing folder and raised it up with foam and also raised the owl with foam to get a more dimensional look.  I left off the graduation cap but this owl would make a cute graduation card as well.

  1. Your nephew certainly will appreciate the book-aid, Ann! Your loving card looks fantastic! I have never thought of embossing twice - once for the background and once for fussy cutting and dimensionalizing! Beautifully designed.... It's fun, yet grown up, serious, yet full of smiles! Congratulations to your family! Hugs, de
