Thank You Teacher
Good evening crafty friends,
I'm starting to get a bit stressed again with work and commitments at home but I'm determined to keep crafting and blogging through it to keep my spirits up. I've got just over 2 weeks until my fortnights holidays so I am sure I can keep going until then.
Tonight's card is one I made a couple of weeks back for Iona to give her teacher at the end of term. Unfortunately the teacher she had last year is leaving the school as it was just a probationary post she had. She is a fantastic teacher for one so young and will be a big miss at the school.
I used black card and white embossing powder to create a chalkboard effect for the focal point of the card then die cut around it using a spellbinders die. It comes complete with some chalk dust by way of some stray embossing powder (oops!). I'm afraid I have no idea about the brand or name of the stamp set as it was given to me by a friend without the packaging but I have a sneaking suspicion it might be a Woodware one. The patterned paper is from a 6x6 stack by Studio Calico called Darling Dear and was a surprise find in TK Maxx for the bargain price of £2.99. I've added some faux stitching using a Micron pen and some narrow gingham ribbon. The card is finished off with some black domed embellishments (can't really describe them as gems) from Hobbycraft and some Tim Holtz Idea-ology letter stickers.
Thank you for taking the time to drop by,
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
