School Bus Hello (Jen Carter)

Jen Carter Quilted School Bus Hello 1.2

School Bus Hello
by Jen Carter

It's hard to believe that my summer is almost over and I have to go back to the school office in just a few short weeks.  WHERE did the summer go? With school on my mind, I wanted to create some school themed projects, so I started first with this card.

I love this new School Bus die by Frantic Stamper!  I wanted to do something fun with it so I decided to go with a quilted/pieced card.  I pulled out lots and lots of coordinating patterned papers and then put the dies to work.  I started by piecing that bus.  Oh my!  Isn't that just the cutest?  My kids don't even ride the bus to school but I still love it!  And the little boy & girl silhouettes that fit inside the window!  What a great addition to the die set!  The bus even has piece-able bumpers!

To create the background, I used the Sunburst Card Panel die to create the sun and just trimmed it where needed to fit on my card mat.

For the hills I took one piece of small cardstock, covered it with adhesive and then cut strips of patterned papers with various greens in it, adding in some white papers with different colors for contrast, and then cut them apart with the Stitched Scene Builder Edgers dies.  It looks like I used a large piece of paper for the hills but because the pieces are layered behind and on top of each other, I made those pieces go a really long way and I really like the look! 

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed this card!
