Hi everyone, I am back and this week I have created a card…. in one of my favorite themes… teacher/school. I am sure being a teacher has me a little bias to these types of cards 😉
When I have decided to create a themed project, I like to dig through my stash and see what I have that carries out the theme. In this case for school – primary colors, apple, staples, paper clips…. you get the idea.
To start off… I am a sucker for text… so I stamped the Giving it All Meaning all over onto a white piece of cardstock as the background.
I started with another favorite of mine… the ‘Grade School Tablet which I wanted to mimic a chalkboard so I stamped and embossed it in white on black cardstock. Once I had that done, I just went to work layering various bits and pieces. The file folder tucked in the back is from the Learning Year by Year stamp set.
Of course… to top it off, seems right to have an Angie Girl – I have used the Moving Forward stamp set.
To carry out the theme, I added a stamped sentiment held on with a paper clip and I tucked in some notebook punched pattern paper. Finally, the die cut teacher sentiment for the finishing touch.
