I'm subbing today at the high school. It's my first official day....I went in Tuesday to sub and I was a month early! They didn't need me til September 19th. I'm sure I wrote it down correctly....it wasn't my fault....I'm always right....just ask my husband. LOL! Anyway, I thought a nice teacher card would be appropriate for today. I'm using Jenni Bowlin's cool papers from yesterday's post and the Lockhart Apples in Chintz Bowl stamp. I colored my image with Copic markers...love how you can shade so effortlessly with Copics! This photo is a little blurry on the closeup...again, not my fault, it's the camera's!
Here we go, this one's better. I cut my image out with a new Spellbinder's die and layered it onto my patterned paper background. Love those polka dots! I added buttons and a flower for embellishments.
And here's the bottom of the card, all tied up pretty with a Papertrey Spring Moss ribbon and an adorable Spellbinder's ribbon slide tag. I love it! The sentiment words are from Papertrey.
I love the idea of making teacher cards a bit more sophisticated than the typical primary colored cards. My girls are in middle school now...I still love to send stuff for the teachers but this type of card seems a little more grown up for the girls to give. Hope you enjoy and wish me luck today!
