Stampin’ Royalty 242-Alphabets

DSCF4678

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Wow, I can’t believe this month is almost over and I only have one more week to participate as a guest designer at Stampin’ Royalty!  It’s been so fun!  This week’s challenge is to use alphabet letters!  I rummaged around in my retired DP and found just the right one!

Storytime not only had great background papers, it also had this cute little image, just right for a boy’s birthday!  I made a little card with my File Tab die, stamped a couple of Verve sentiments on it and then cut out some ABCs in Real Red, So Saffron and Baja Breeze with the Little Letters dies.  They looked a little plain so I cut another set in Basic Black to layer behind them like a shadow, and I like this look much better!

I added a little metal arrow clip and some baker’s twine:

and I had some vintage-looking DP that sort of fit the theme of this card, and used it to make a custom-sized envelope, since this card is about 7 1/2” x 4 1/4”!!  That Envelope Punch Board is so handy!

I’ll bet there are lots of ways that you could incorporate alphabet letters into your creation, especially since it’s back-to-school time!  Can’t wait to see what you create; share it with us at Stampin’ Royalty!
