You're a Class Act

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!

You're a Class Act card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse Confetti
My card is based on 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.

Materials Used:
Class Act stamp set, Class Act dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Luxe Love Letter, Rich Cocoa, and Wedding Dress inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Steel Grey cardstock (My Favorite Things); Simply Chartreuse and Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Snow embossing powder (Michaels); stitched rectangle dies (Lil' Inker Designs); foam tape

  1. Such cute little apples. I love the "blackboard" along with the kraft and chartreuse color scheme. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
