An Apple For The Teacher


Hi everyone, the end of the school year is nearly here and I have been playing around with a couple of teacher thank you cards.  One card in two colours cut on the Silhouette and one using stamps and an embossing folder.


I cut the two cards from papermilldirect white linen and buff cardstock and cut the apple from scraps of post box red and mid green cardstock.  The square insert was stamped with a Hero Arts Thanks stamp.


This layered card was made using papermilldirect white linen, Lustre Print Gold Magenta and spring green cardstock to match the stamped image.   The green card was embossed then rubbed over with a white ink pad to make the numbers pop.  I stamped three apples and leaves from the Clearly Besotted An Apple A Day stamp set and the sentiment from Dark Room Door in green and coral ink.  The image and layers were mounted onto a white linen card blank.

I am loving being back in my craft room, lots of work on my desk this weekend including some Gelli Plate background cards and a tutorial.  Back next week, see you then xx
