Hello! Since it is teacher appreciation week, the Cardmaker blog team gals are sharing cards we have made with the theme: What a Difference You've Made--Thank you cards for teachers and mentors.
I designed a card that can be given to a teacher of any level. Since I have one in high school and two in elementary school---I like to make things that can be given to any of the teachers.
Echo Park's This and That Charming collection for the card. I used the banner strip and then added stickers in each flag to spell out teacher. (It was the perfect length for a standard sized card---happy joy! Love when that stuff happens.)
After adding another strip above the teacher border, I inked and stitched the edges of the card. I added some alpha twill ribbon over the borders (Ribbon Carousel). The globe sticker is popped up on a card I cut from another piece of paper in the collection. I added a little Honeydew baker's twine (The Twinery) to finish off that section.
I love the more mature look of this card, especially since most of my teacher cards in the past have been for elementary school teachers. Fun to mix it up a bit.
Supplies: cardstock-ivory (Gina K Designs); patterned paper- This & That-Charming (Echo Park Paper); ink- tea dye distress (Ranger); baker's twine- Honeydew (The Twinery); tiny attacher stapler (Tim Holtz); sewing machine; alpha twill ribbon (Ribbon Carousel).
Here is the list of the blogs participating in the hop: Go and be inspired!
