Hello everyone, Lisa here today to share a card with you featuring two sweet book lovin' school friends! The featured set is part of the new release and is called Your Next Book Dear. It is perfect for kids returning to school but also it is a great set for all book lovers out there. For my card today, I use the little girl and boy walking to school.

To begin, I stamped the boy and girl onto Neenah 80lb cardstock using Black Hybrid Ink. I coloured them with Copics and then I cut them out with the coordinating dies and set them to one side.

I masked off the bottom part of an A2 white panel and took the Slim Line Horizontal English Brick Wall Stencil and secured that over the top section of the panel. Using Life Changing Blender Brushes, I blended a subtle wall using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink.

I then removed the stencil and took the tiled floor image from Slim Line Grass & Waves With Tile and Wood Floor stamp set. I could have used the A2 version of this set but the tiles in the slim line version are bigger so I thought they would work well with the larger brick. So, I stamped them down using Black Hybrid Ink and I then blended Pumice Stone Distress ink over the top using Life Changing Blender Brushes. It's very soft in the photos but in real life it is an ombre blend with the darker section at the bottom of the wall.

I trimmed the panel down and matted it onto a turquoise card base using double sided tape. The sentiment is from the set and was stamped using Versamark Ink onto black cardstock. I added white embossing powder and heat set. The girl, boy and sentiment were all popped up with foam tape for dimension.

Aren't they just so sweet with their big smiles. I'd like to hope that I smiled like that on the way to school but I'm not sure it was every day! Until next time, I hope that you have a great day!
