Back to School Card

The return to school after the winter break is almost as sweet as the first day of school in the fall. So why not celebrate the little things, like a a quiet house!

Back to School Card Tutorial by Beth Pingry for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LI created this stand up card from one single sheet of card stock, then embellished it with patterned paper. I started with an 8½ x 11″ sheet, scored it at 3″ on each side, then turned it sideways and scored the center at 2½”. Then I carefully trimmed along those center lines.

I pulled images from the Graphic 45 “An ABC Primer Collection”, and adhered them with the new black Crafty Foam Tape from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™.

I love the Crafty Foam Tape! I love how the black color hides behind the images, giving it height without shouting “hey, I’m here!” PLUS I can trim the Crafty Foam Tape to exactly the length I need.

Back to School Card by Beth Pingry for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LI trimmed images from the paper collection and adhered with both Crafty Foam Tape and E-Z Dots® Permanent adhesives. I folded the cardstock so that the center section pops out and the entire card stands on it’s own.

This card, folded up, will fit in a standard business size envelope for mailing. I could mail it to my sister when she gets her teaching degree, or I could keep it as home decor for my son’s graduation at the end of this school year.


I love the way this turned out, and I love the format of this card, it can be any theme you need!

How would you embellish a card like this?
