GCD Studios + Back to School Awesomeness

     Hey there friends! GCD Studios has been focusing on back to school projects because September marks the beginning of school seasonI These cards were featured in this month's edition of The Paper CutGCD Studios newest e-zine filled with tips, tricks, ideas and fun projects! These two cards used only paper from the Country Charm collection and have a fun back-to-school theme.

Mixing fun trends like the polka dots in the patterned paper and hexagon die cuts make this card playful and perfect for your young back-to-schooler!  

Play around with your die cuts. I die cut a panel of pattern paper and then trimmed some off. Creating movement though "falling" hexagons highlights the bold colors and patterns of the paper. Back-to-school is a happy milestone in a kid's life, add a sentiment to your card and present it to your little scholar on the first day back. 

Remember those wooden desks in your classroom? Well, I sure do-this woodgrain paper brings back the memories of writing on those laminate desks! It also provides a great backdrop for the "Super Star" title and theme of this card.

A cute variety of patterned paper stars against the fun green patterned paper and woodgrain patterned paper work well together and lead the eye to the mini chalkboard sentiment!
