Back to School ~ spots and dots

Hello bloggers today we have a card for everyone going back to school, college or university as the holidays are nearing an end here in the UK.

The photo doesn't show up the colours very well, the cardstock and papers are green with the spotted cardstock being a jade green colour.  This card began as a white hammered 6x6 cardstock.  To the front I adhered some silver textured holographic cardstock cut slightly smaller than the card blank.  Next using some jade coloured topsy turvy cardstock I embossed this with That Special Touch 'polka dot' mask.  I then inked through the mask with clear perfect medium.  Cosmic Shimmer 'true white' embossing powder was then poured onto the perfect medium dots and then this was heat embossed.  Next I cut the cardstock to make a mat and adhered it to the card blank.  Using Crafter's Companion Popcorn The Bear 'school days' stamp set I stamped the topper image using black soot distress ink.  This was then coloured with ProMarkers and die cut with Spellbinders 'labels H' die set.  I also cut a mat from the topsy turvy cardstock using the next die up in the set.  This was turned over so the lighter colour was showing and adhered to the card.  The topper was then adhered on top after inking the edges with a ProMarker.  Next I stamped the sentiment using the Crafter's Companion 'flower fairies friends heliotrope' stamp set and evergreen bough distress ink.  This was die cut using spellbinders 'labels 14' die set.  A mat was also cut using the same die and jade topsy turvy cardstock.  The mat was cut in half lengthways and adhered to the back of the sentiment.  This was attached to the card on the top left side.  Finally with some jade coloured ribbon I tied a bow and adhered that to the top of the sentiment.
