The third challenge at Um Buggin’s Cricut Cuts & Stamps is to create a card or item using a school-themed Cricut cartridge that you already own. It has to have a Cricut diecut and a stamped image somewhere on it, and also be a new creation. Lillie made the cutest backpack and easel card — be sure and check them out.
I wasted a lot of time going back and forth on what I was going to do and finally decided on a card with a school bus. The printed paper is from Die Cuts With A View — the Grade School stack. The bus is from the Doodlecharms cartridge. When I was laying out the card in Design Studio, I thought it would be cute to put some type of critter in each of the windows of the bus. I used Create A Critter for the animals. The little patch of road is from Everday Paper Dolls and the sentiment is from 3 Birds on Parade. I stamped the lines on the bus and also the pencil on the sign. I did some doodling using Sharpie Poster-Paint markers. I added buttons to the tires and Stickles to the gold stars.
I did a little more stamping on the inside of the card, using clear stamps from Basic Grey and Studio G.
