With April around the corner, I thought that I would get a jump on making teacher thank you cards. Reverse Confetti has this great apple set that I love using and thought I would make several versions of the card for all my kid’s teachers.
I also entered this card in the Reverse Confetti Sketch Challenge #46.
For this card I started by stamping the apple image and die cutting the pieces. I love the script on the apple and it was helpful using my Misti to ensure that my image was crisp.
I then die cut the apple pieces and some foam, and adhered the foam to the back of all the die cuts to help pop them off the page. I shaded the apple and leaves a little with some colored pencils to help give it a little more dimension.
I had a little notebook die I received from a friend that I used on some pattern paper to make it look like a school page. I then tool some washi and added to the side as well as some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry.
Here is a look at the other card I made with the same technique just different paper.
For my second technique, I wanted to use my distress crayons. I purchased these a while back but really haven’t played with them that much.
For this one, I started with some card-stock and coated it with some white gesso. After the gesso dried, I randomly colored the page with my distress crayons and blended it in with my finger.
I then took this ABC Cover Panel from Reverse Confetti and die cut the page. I love the look of this ABC Panel!
I adhered the cover panel onto some Neenha Solar White 110 pound card stock and attached the same apples from above. An easy and fun little teacher card. Thanks for stopping by.
P.S. I also entered these cards in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
