Teacher Gift




I have been busy the last few nights making this teacher gift. I have
got to be one of the slowest card/stuff makers out there. *grin* It
just seems to take me forever to finish a project like this...but I
love making them...so I guess that is what counts the most.
I made
this teacher coaster box for a special teacher. Then I thought...I
gotta make some cards to match to put in the box. So this is what I
came up with. I'm pretty pleased with how this project turned out.
I had one sheet left of this apple background paper and knew I had to use it. (I'm also very, very patterned paper challenged LOL ) I will be making a few more boxes and filling them with cards. Just need to find more school themed paper.
Before attaching the red card stock on the coaster I ran it through my Cuttlebug using my one and only flower embossing folder. Love, love, love this new toy!!!!

The stamp is Teachabella.
When I saw this stamp on the site I knew I had to add it to my ever
growing collection of stamps. My daughter-in-law is a teacher and my
daughter is finishing up her degree soon in education to teach second
grade.
Paper is Bazzill. I used my Prisma pencils to color and Gamsol to blend. I really like using this technique to color. Ribbon is from SU!

Thanks for stopping by!
