Thank You Teacher

Thank You Teacher card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs
Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the layout to create a teacher themed design.

The rectangular panel was made from gray cardstock and stamped with white ink to give it a chalkboard-like appearance that's appropriate for a school themed card.  The stamped sentiment from the Lil' Inker Designs Teacher Talk set was heat embossed in white to stand out.  I matted the panel on contrasting red cardstock, then adhered it to a kraft card base.  The apple element was die cut using LID's Apple Shaker die set and a bunch of cardstock scraps. After assembling it, I used foam tape to adhere the apple to the upper right corner of the sentiment panel to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Teacher Talk stamp set, Apple Shaker dies (Lil' Inker Designs); Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Real Red, Garden Green, and Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Steel Grey cardstock (My Favorite Things); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Snow embossing powder (Recollections); foam tape
