School's Finished

As a thank you gift to my son's teachers I made a little bag of cards & added his picture to a potted violet. To the left is the photo of the two together. The little bag contained a thank you card & three blank cards.

The apple card & bag were taken from here:

This was the little photo I stuck into the potted plant. I saw the saying on splitcoast & made my own. Using Tombow MultiAdhesive I adhered the green apple paper from Summer Picnic to a chipboard star. Then I glued on the picture and trimmed it to match the star. Next I sanded the edges of the star. Using the Crop-a-dile I punched two holes & added two Always Artichoke brads. I used the computer to create the circular text "Thanks for helping me grow!" and printed it on White & Artichoke paper. I punched them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and the 3/4" circle punch and adhered it to the star. Finally, I taped the star to a pencil.

And last but not least, I made three blank cards. The orange one from two posts ago was one & these were the other two.

This card was inspired by:


Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White - paper; Old Olive - ink; Fresh Cuts - stamp set; Spiral Punch, Styled Silver HodgePodge Hardware, Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon, Fairytale Ribbon Originals - accessories;

And finally, one of my favorite colour combos... Black & River Rock. This is a really quick & easy card! Just stamp, cut & stick!!


Basic Black, River Rock, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DSP - paper; River Rock, Basic Black - ink; Hearfelt Thanks, Wonderful Words - stamp sets; 1 3/8" square punch - accessories;

Aww, gifts for the teacher already? Doesn't seem possible that he's so big already! Very neat idea ... much better than another apple mug!
