I cannot tell you how much I appreciate my boys' teachers. It is a hard hard hard job! I am thankful that they have been blessed with good teachers in a great school. I can't imagine the time, energy, and love they pour into our kids - THANK YOU, teachers!
If you feel the same way about the teachers in your kids' lives, you'll love this month's release from Our Daily Bread Designs. I used the stamp set Class Act to make this simple but heartfelt card.
I first stamped in memento black ink and used Copics to color my stack of books. I embossed in white on black card stock this quote for a chalk board look - not that the kids' classrooms use chalkboard nowadays. :) I smeared a bit of white ink around just to get the used look of a chalkboard. I nested two square dies to make a frame and colored it with different shades of brown Copic markers for a wood grain look. Finally I added some Crystal Effects to make my apple pop with a shine.
