Thank you teacher card...


This card is one of four very similar ones, they are from my youngest to her teachers and TA's, who have all played a part in ensuring she has had a happy second year at school.
I used the sizzix accordion album card die. The thank you is from a stamp that I coloured and cut each letter out individually. I tried blending the promarkers to colour the girl which is from a prince and princess stamp set. Although it's not clear from the photo, I used some stickles glitter glue on the roses on the dress which sparkle beautifully when they catch the light.

I have been searching for a smaller Alphabet die to fit on the flags of the flagpole die. This is the sizzix 'neon mini' strip die. I would have liked to buy the 'small stuff' alphabet die but could only find it for sale in America and as I've already been stung with a hefty import fee (UK government grrrr) from a previous purchase I decided not to do that again!

The alphabet die in this one is the spellbinders 'Donna's Alphas' ..... Hummm a bit big but still fun to experiment with all the different size alphabet dies I have.

  1. Wow! What awesome teacher thank you cards. I particularly love Miss Lavelle's card and how you mimicked the banners from the paper with the same colors - very striking! They are all wonderful!

  2. I envy the teachers that will receive the cards. Did you hand cut the banners or did you use a die? If so which die?

    1. i Patonslake, thank you for your kind words. The smaller banners are cut using the sizzix flagpole decorative strip die. The larger scallop edged banners were made from one of a set triangular framelits.
