First Day Card

We're counting down the days until the Summer Mini-Catalog and its products are gone! Eight more days to get it before it's hasta la vista, baby!!

Today's project is made with the "First Day" stamp set. I originally purchased this set for scrapbooking - it's perfect for all of those, you guessed it, first days of school. But after I ran across a couple of adorable cards made with the set during swaps with other demonstrators, I decided to give a "first day" card a try. Here's the result:

I used my Stampin' Write Markers to ink the images so that I could get the three different colored apples, leaves and stems. This is such a great way to incorporate more than one color on a single stamped image! It's as simple as coloring the images with the markers then "huffing" on the stamp to re-moisten the ink. Depending on the complexity of your color scheme it can be a little time-consuming so leave yourself a few extra minutes to complete the project.Supplies and dimensions are listed below.
