Write on...

Serendipity's first challenge this month was to use stamps that showed writing.... not hard since they have a great selection of stamps to choose from in that category... but I fell in love with the Feather Pen (192D), it's so swirly and elegant looking.

And since having a few teacher friends and a few friends who are avid journal writers I thought I'd make up a card that was also a gift.

Here's my card.. it was super simple, would make such great writing prizes or just a gift from the teacher, and would be great in so many color schemes, school colors, holiday colors, or favorite colors.

Feather Pen Serendipity Stamp (192D)
Three coordinating pens
Three colors of cardstock to match pens
Coordinating Ink
White or other coordinating letter stickers

* Cut card base to 4"x4" make two mats in coordinating colors.
* Cut a strip of paper to go around pens whatever size you need to hold pens you choose... Glue three colored strips together and score into a box, and adhere to card front.
* Stamp feather pen and cut out. Adhere to top of pen holder.
* Use letter stickers to spell out Write on.

Amy, this is fantastic! What a super idea! I love how you coordinated the pens into the design - I love it when a card doubles as a gift! Thanks for the inspiration and great idea!
