This fortnight at Shopping Our Stash we're celebrating back to school season with a challenge that features BOOKS! Does that sound like fun? Yep, I thought so too!
Here's a shocking true confession: I made a card similar to this in April, which also used Eyelet Outlet Book Tape, Wood Tape, Book Brads and Coffee Brads, as well as the adorable stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts' Books and Coffee stamp set (that I was lucky enough to win from Doodlebugs.wa in the last Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop). But I have quite a few reading friends who would enjoy a card like this; also... I was kind of in the mood to stamp and color! So I made another version. This one features my all time favorite reading quote, from Groucho Marx, which I formatted in a nice typewriter font and printed out before trimming it into shape with one of my trusty Nestabilities Label Shape sets. I matted the whole thing up on a Beary nice page from an elderly dictionary.
