Alphabet Cards - 26 cards in 26 days

Today I am starting a card making challenge for myself. For the next 26 days I will be creating a card each day. I am going through the alphabet in search for inspiration. Each day will be inspired by a letter. 

To start things off I thought it would only be appropriate that A be for alphabet. The alphabet is the starting point for most things we learn and we spend a lot of our learning time in school. And in the spirit of back to school time, this card has a school theme.

Almost all the materials used for this card are things you would by for school shopping. A piece of notebook paper was torn out and cut to size for the background paper. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss a flourish along the side of the paper. This adds a little bit of flare to the otherwise plain paper. Plus, I don't know about you but, my whole notebook was filled with doodles so this was a fun way to represent that. I also used an index card which was cut to have a decorative edge. The letters are placed on a post-it note. A green paper clip and metallic staples give the finishing touches to this card.
