For My Teacher.
As you would imagine, with a brood my size, I have had to make a fair swag of teacher's Thank You cards for various teachers over the years. This card is one of the more recent ones I made to go out in the last batch. I have been meaning to post it on my blog for yonks, but, but, but. You know how that goes: Best laid plans of mice and men...
Nothing too flash about this card using all of the Vintage Picnic accouterments from Papertrey Ink, but it turned out rather homely which I quite liked. I glossed up the apples for good measure, using Glossy Accents after crudely coloring them with Copics. The die-cut picnic basket was then stamped and heat embossed with Zing! embossing powder in Gold. The other bits and bobs were from Spellbinders. I used their Nestabilities dies from the Postage set, Classic Squares, and Doily Motifs. I cannot recall which DP I used, but I am willing to take a punt and say that it was a page from Basic Grey's, um...er... Hello Luscious perhaps? To be honest, I cannot even begin to recall what the other papers are. I just used my scrap box (yep, the one that is bigger than all get out) as a bit of a Lucky Dip and away I went. Nothing like a little "surprise chef" cardmaking to get you under way. Not much more to add, save making a Note To Self to use the various Vintage Picnic odds and sods a bit more because I do find them rather sweet.
Thanks so very much for for stopping by. It's a treat as always!
