Too Cool 4 School

I made two of these cards to carry gift cards to my niece and nephew as they begin a new school year. They are 17 and 20, so in high school and college. I loved playing with the new stamp set Cheer All Year, which is where I got the feathers. The feathers are fussy cut using Paper Snips. I added some a piece of folded Mossy Meadow Striped Cotton Ribbon and a bow of Very Vanilla Thick Twine to anchor my flag. (Cherr All Year and Very Vanilla Thick Twine will be available September 1st in the Holiday Catalog). 

On my flag, I wrote: "You're Too Cool 4 School" using Basic Black and Delightful Dijon ink and the Alphabet Rotary stamp. The Whisper White flag is just about 7/8" wide and I centered it into the smallest "ditch" in the Banner Triple punch. My background is from Chocolate Chip card stock that I embossed using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I hardly ever use Chocolate Chip anymore, so I really had to look around for some!
