I just love this card!!! I started it by making my own stack of books. I started with linear patterned paper and then glued my own handcut deep U shape out of plain cardstock for the book covers. I stacked the books onto kraft colored cardstock to resemble a desk. I cut out the apple from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge which I think had the best apple image of all my catrdiges. The background black cardstock was used to resemble a blackboard and by adding lines and the words 'back to school' my white gel pen, I think I created a cute card that I know my counsin will appreciate receiving. She is in her second year at teaching and in few weeks, will resume teaching her grade 2 class at a new school.
