Teacher Appreciation Card

Today is the 5th of September the day we appreciate and thank our teachers for all the effort they take in grooming us. Since I have started getting involved in Card Making there are a lot of teachers who have helped me learn the idea behind creating wonderful cards. I have learnt Techniques, Fancy Folds, Layouts, Layering, Inking, Stamping and the list just goes on. I want to take this opportunity to Thank each and every one of my Teachers.

Today I spent some time with the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for the month of September 2014, it has amazing set 'To Thine Own Shelf', some pattern paper, Washi Tape, Stickers and a mini distress ink pad, an absolute mix of fantastic products.

To create the cards I started with a standard A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 closed). Using the Simon says stamp Stencil and embossing paste I created two different backgrounds one using the Moroccan Window Stencil and the other using the large dots stencil. Once the background was created I let it dry for over an hour. I took another panel of 31/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches and created the center panel using multiple inks. I then layered both the sides of this panel with 3/4 inch Chocolate Chip Card Stock, leaving just 1/8 of an inch visible on both the sides. Then I placed the stencil again on the background and then applied Vintage Photo distress ink. Once dried I layered the center panel on the card.

I made a total of 6 cards for my daughters six school teachers. A very simple yet effective layout so easy to do and get a beautiful effect.

Please feel free to write to me for any more details.

To kick start the year I have made these cards for some wonderful friends that I have met on this crafty journey over the last one year.

The size of the cards is 4 x 5 1/2 inches and the focal panel is 3 x 5 1/2 inches. I have lined the sides with Gold Metallic paper and Silver metallic paper. For the sentiment i have used Vellum and embossed the sentiment using my Ranger Heat Tool.
