Teacher Style Thanks

Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn FawnThe current Lawnscaping challenge is to create a clean and simple card.  I used the challenge to create a simple thank you card with Lawn Fawn's A Good Apple stamp set.  The card's teacher theme makes it perfect for me to tuck away in my desk at work for when I need to write a quick thank you to a colleague or to the parent of a student.

I stamped the set's "thanks" image in black pigment ink on a kraft panel, then heat embossed the word with black embossing powder.  To dress it up a bit, I stamped the set's apple and ruler images in black ink on a scrap of white cardstock.  After coloring the images with Copic markers, I cut them out and arranged them at the end of the word.  The apple was adhered with foam tape for a little pop.   The finished panel was layered on to an easy to write on white card base.

This set is among the items still available at i {heart} papers.  IHP's liquidation sale is continuing and as of today, your order will be discounted 65% with the code BYEIHP at checkout.  In addition, Kate has packed up some huge Priority Mail boxes of assorted ribbon (worth over $200) that are selling for $80.  With the coupon, the boxes will sell for $28 (plus shipping).  That's a great deal for all of you ribbon lovers out there.  You can find the boxes here while supplies last.
