Hi friends, Eloise here and today I have a teacher appreciation card to share with you all using minimal supplies. This is also a card I feel that can be reproduced very easily if you’d like to give to multiple teachers. I used the ‘An Apple A Day‘ Die Set, ‘Thanks Sugar Script‘ Dies and Make A Statement Stamp Set to create this card.
To begin this card I started off my die cutting my apple die. I cut it from some watercolour cardstock sine I find that’s the best for blending Distress Inks. I then pulled various colours of Distress Inks out and coloured in the individual pieces of the die. I used Candied Apple, Barn Door, Festive Berries, Gathered Twigs and Fossilized Amber for my apple. Gathered Twigs for the stem and Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn for the leaf. Once everything was blended I set it off to the side to dry a little.
For the base of my card, I pulled some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock out and used the Quilted Embossing Folder from We R Memory Keepers on it. Then I used some more Gathered Twigs to ink blend around the edges. I also cut this piece to 3 1/2″ wide to make sure my apple could over lap the edge.
Next I added foam tape onto the images and adhered them overlapping the left hand side of my card panel. For my sentiment I used the ‘Thanks Sugar Script‘ Dies and cut that from white cardstock and then white heat embossed the ‘So Very Much’ sentiment from ‘Make A Statement‘ onto a thin strip of black cardstock.
Lastly, I added foam tape onto the backs of the sentiments and adhered them into place and then I added a ‘shine’ mark to the apple using my Wink of Stella pen in Clear.
