Teacher Card with Lori

The end of the school year is upon most of us in the next couple of weeks. I like to send the teachers a little something in a card to say thank you for their efforts. My son is not likely to appreciate anything too girly, and since I want him to sign it, I went with this easy number:

The entire thing is cut from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge, using My Mind's Eye papers and cardstock. The Stella & Rose - Mabel paper pad I used is not in the store, but many of their lines have the same muted feel. I think it looks a bit like a county fair, which I think is pretty cool!

To add to the rustic look, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade and Evergreen Bough to edge all of my cut papers.

 After assembly, I added accents with Distress Stickles in Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, and Clear Rock Candy. I also slightly curled up the bottom ends of the ribbons.

It's a great way to accent small bits, or to draw attention to a certain part of a single color item, like this sentiment.

I cut the matching envelope from the cartridge, and also ink distressed the edges of the closed envelope to coordinate.

I hope you enjoyed today's project; I had a great time making it! Thanks for stopping by.
