An Apple For The Teacher

Good evening friends, followers and passers by.  Today I have my DT cards for Papermilldirect, two thank you teacher projects.  This week to celebrate Summer you can save 10% on a small box of card (approximately 80 sheets) at Papermilldirect until Monday 14th July.  You can also enter a new giveaway to win a £20.00 voucher from Lavinia Stamps, check it out here.

First a card in the shape of a blackboard.  I used Papermill smooth white, buff and black card with some patterned paper from my scrap box.  The card is a Silhouette Studio file.  The outer part of the blackboard was coloured with gathered twigs distress ink through a bark effect stencil and stuck to the front of the card.  The blackboard was stamped with a Darkroom Door sentiment stamp and embossed with distress embossing powder and rubbed over with white chalk.  The blackboard was attached to the back of the aperture.  The banner was added and two pieces of string added to the legs of the blackboard.

This is another Silhouette file, a gift box.  Again Papermilldirect smooth white, post box red,  lime green and dark cream linen card and patterned paper from my scrap box.

The design team have made some fabulous samples this week check out their blogs to see what they have been up to:
