Teacher's Apple

Two weeks ago I started and finished a card in just one day. Actually it took me exactly 3 hours. I don't know how you ladies can get all these cards made and be full time employed like I am. My unfinished cards are stacking up and I hope that one of these days I will get them done.

I made this card for Dominique's teacher. She is one of those teacher's that still inspires her student's. The graduation for her Kindergarten class was held in the classroom and all of us were able to attend the last day of school. At one point all the students were asked to either share some news or just a thought. When Dominique's term came she said, " I will miss you Mrs. Carsten, when I go to first grade". She is such a loving and caring child. Everybody went "Aaaaahhhh".

Now to the items I used to make this card. The base of the card is a large and long purchased card and the matting is Bazzill. The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck "The Boyfriend". I stamped the image of the apple and the saying on white cardstock and cut it with a PTI Die called Mat Stack 1. I colored the apple with Prisma Pencils. I believe the word Teacher's was stamped with PTI ink Aqua Mist. The punches I used are from Fiskars and MS. I wrapped twine around the DP and attached a PTI button in Pure Poppy. The matting for the inside is also Bazzill and I stamped apples on Inchies and again colored them with Prisma Pencils and inked the edges with Ranger Distress Ink. I also distressed all the papers with the distress ink, which took a lot of time. The label on the inside was also cut with the PTI Mat Stack 1.

I hope you all like my little creation. Thank you for still dropping by once in a while, it is very much appreciated
