An Apple For Teacher

Even though my children are long since back in school, I know that most of the country is still out school shopping and making plans for Labor Day. I decided that maybe a few of the extra teacher cards would be a nice addition to my Etsy shop as well as an applicable post for here. Today's card is another one of my entries for the Anni-Verve-Sary Sketch Challenge on the Verve forum a few weeks ago. I think it is the only one I haven't already posted here too. I used these for my kids' teachers after the first week of school. Take a look...

That cute little back to school puppy image is a relatively new digi-image from All That Scraps and the sketch is #AVS202. I printed the sentiment on my computer so it would fit just right in a small circle at the top of the oval. When I was designing this card, I tried a plain red cardstock panel behind the image but it needed a little something so I made my own designer paper by stamping abc's in versamark ink all over the red cardstock. I like the effect. I almost never use that very common technique and I can't imagine why because I love it here. Another point to mention is the blue background. Notice the polka dot texture? Like it? It is one of the new QuicKutz embossing folders. I am very happy with the few I have so far because they are full A2 size instead of the slightly smaller original Cuttlebug folders.

Well, I think I'll go for now. Groceries need to be purchased and beds need changing so it is time to get the new week started. Have a great Monday for yourself!

  1. This is soooo sweet Kyla! I really like that polka dot EB folder. I will have to check that one out. I don't own any of those new ones from QuicKutz. Love your little buttons too:))
