Mint Motif Sneak Peek: School Basics

Hello!  I’m here today with a very CAS card using the latest Mint Motif set, School Basics, which will be available for purchase on August 14th.  This is a great back to school set but is also much more.  I stamped the handwriting line (love that it is long enough to go across a full A2 card) in Palette Charcoal and then stamped the words in Noir.  The words nestle perfectly in the lines.  Then I stamped the apple, twice in Palette Chartreuse and once in L’Amour Red, kissed with one of the patterns from Very Square.  The apples are dabbed with some Stickles.

Be sure to stop by the design team blogs. We’ll be drawing a winner to win this set from all of the comments left on today’s posts.   Kimberly will announce the winner on her blog.
