Hi! Today I am playing along in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights! Our theme this month is Teachers! If you like my card, I’d love your vote! You can vote here and then click on the heart in the upper right corner of my card.
Ok – so here’s my card:
School starts at the end of this month for my kids, so now is a good time be thinking of back-to-school cards and gifts.
I didn’t really have an apple set or anything else teacher related – so I turned my lemons into apples! That’s right – I stamped the lemon from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Real Red ink, punched with the Lemon Builder Punch and then trimmed top and bottom to make an apple. I added a stem using a scrap of Early Espresso card stock. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive. What do you think? Pretty clever?
I added a Welcome sentiment using the Banners For You stamp set and the Duo Banner punch.
The apples are attached to a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Tropical Escape Paper Stack that measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″. This is mounted on Early Espresso Card Stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. The base is Old Olive Card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – scored and folded at 4 1/4″.
Make sure you check out all the other demonstrators for more fun Teacher themed projects!
You’ll find all the supplies to make this card in my on-line store.
Don’t forget it is Bonus Days time and each $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) you spend this month, earns you a $5 coupon to use in September.
Thanks for stopping by!
