Apple Crayon Teacher Card
I am excited to share my project with you guys today! And excited for the Die Cut Challenge at Stuck on U Sketches....which is...School Is Cool!
Let's see all those school related die cuts...apples, school buses, school supplies, etc! There are many, many ideas for this and our fabulous Design Team has some great examples of projects..so head on over if you haven't already!
So these little sweeties actually took me forever and to be honest, was crazy close to not even making this! Finding the right apple shape within my Cricut cartridges with a shadow that was thick enough to cut like this was super tough. The apple I ended up with...the one from Create a Critter.
It took some time looking in my stash for a printed paper that wouldn't just look nuts with the multi colors of the crayons. But I finally came across this simple alpha print on creme paper. With a little text stamping in Antique Linen distress ink, its all I needed and was perfect...
Here you can see the crayon's and the dimension...makes for a cool, rather heavy card! LOL!
And a finished inside...I'm looking for an A+ on these!
I've used a bunch of stamps from my stash, punches, some cork for the stems, twine, mini paperclips and themed stickers.
I'm so excited to find out who my kids have for their teachers this year and I hope these cards will show them how much it means that they'll be caring and teaching my babies for the year! Teachers are a big, big deal!
Well gosh, that's it for me today...hope you are all well! I know we get used to all the craft projects and the blogging but I also know that some folks are not experiencing the best in life and for those of you that are struggling...know that my prayers have been with you.
