Last week I had the opportunity to participate in a three day Facilitative Leadership training with my school system's reading specialists. As part of the training, we were secretly assigned a colleague to observe throughout the training and "celebrate" at the end of the course. We were given a budget of one dollar and one hour for our celebration. Given that I'm a cardmaker, I knew I'd have to design a teacher themed card as part of my celebration!
the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the layout's large panel to make a chalkboard-like piece from dark gray cardstock cut with a stitched rectangle die and heat embossed with the "you're a class act" sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Class Act set. I added a pair of stamped apples beneath the sentiment, using foam tape to attach the top apple to give it dimension. After tying a piece of red gingham ribbon around the top of the stitched panel, I adhered it to a piece of kraft cardstock. The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating apple green card base.
