Summer is almost over and school is upon us yet again – this card features the school house from the
Polka Dot Pals Delia set plus two of the paper airplanes to celebrate the season. I used the Sun Rays Stencil to indicate how much each of us can shine as we learn. I think this would be a perfect card for a teacher.

I began this card by using the Sun Rays Stencil and my Copic markers to create the rainbow rays. That piece was then cut out using two sets of stitched dies so I could layer them and give the card more of a 3D effect. I used three from Wonky Stitched Rectangles and the large one from Card Builder Windows (which is useful for that 1/8″ border around the outside of the card and the bonus part is it also has stitches on it. I really like this size die and use it all the time.)
After the background was layered on a card base, I then start with the front. The school and paper airplanes are accessory stamps from Polka Dot Pals Delia. Then I used some other dies to cut out the scalloped circle, circle, tree and ground so those could be layered in the background too. I colored the tree and ground but chose to keep the circle white so the focus would be more on the school than having it look like a rising sun. It’s more for calming that area down than anything else. Lastly, I added some dashes for the airplanes to indicate they were flying.
