We have a brand spanking new teacher in our family, my niece who just graduated with a Master’s degree in Music Education. She is off to a small town in Southeast Alaska and will be teaching choral, band, and orchestra to K-12! The school colors happen to be green and yellow, hence the color choice of my card to send to her to congratulate her on her new job.
First I reverse pressure embossed a section of Core’dinations green/black cardstock and sanded away to highlight the musical design. Then I die cut it with Sizzix 560147 to create the scalloped card front. The “back 2 school”, and “teacher” sentiments are from the Unity Smarty Pants set from September 2015. The “new” is from a VERY old All Night Media Rubber Stamp Poet set that used to be foam mounted, it is from before 2000 if I am guessing right! Amazingly you can still find it on eBay! The images are stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy. The die cut is from the same set as the scalloped card front. I added a bit of paper twine with a knot on the front and then adhered the card together.
This card will be in the mail very soon!
