Teacher Appreciation

Hi everyone and thanks for hopping on over from the Card A Day Blog.  Today we are creating Teacher Appreciation Cards. I used the Crate Paper that I had pulled out for March Counterfeit Kit for the background.  I stamped the stacked books and book worm onto white cardstock and cut then out.  I added the ruled paper after stamping the apple border and using a punch on the side.

The bookworm is on pop up dots and looks like he's attached to the paper clip. A strip of ribbon with a bow on the side finishes it off. 

For the inside I punched a piece of the background paper and layered onto the white mat.

Now I don't send out Teacher Appreciation cards so I'll be sending this one to my sister for her grandson.

Thanks for stopping.

Super cute card that is a fun stamp. I like how you angled the whole piece on the card gives a casual look about it. :)
