CPC Back to School Blog Hop!

Good Monday and welcome to this months Christian Paper Crafts Blog Hop.  Our theme this month is Back to School.  This corresponds with this month Design Team Delights Gallery which opened on the 15th of August and wow, what great talent is over at Christian Paper Crafts!

I would like to share with you the cards I made for this challenge.  They are basically the same except for the size of the "My Digital Studio" (MDS) stamps that I put on them.  I actually wanted to do one before I did the other just to see the final outcome and for some reason, I did not save the template I did from the first one, so the size of the stamps on the green are different.  Oh well, they both turned out wonderful.  The cards are Hybrid as I put the stamps on a 8 1/2 X 11 landscape in MDS and then made them the size I needed to be able to punch out with the 1" round punch and the 1 1/4" round punch.  Also on the same sheet, I put the size of the card, 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 peice of card stock in the old olive so I could place the stamps on the green card stock and also print it out together.  Of course as you can see on the card, I then cut it to the size I needed it.  I thought it turned out very well since the only place I had this stamp set was in MDS.  Also thanks to Stamping 411 for the sketch.  It worked out wonderful for these cards.  They actually have two sketches for this week and I have used both.  The cards will be sent to school with my Dear Granddaughter's on their first day of school this Thursday signed by Grammy and Papa!
