Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today sharing a teacher’s appreciation card for the current challenge. It’s back to school time and this year has been so challenging for everyone. Teachers are truly heroes and need recognition!
The Back to School challenge will be open until Sunday, September 20 at 11:59PM ET. I hope you will join us!
Apples are the one of the many symbols for teachers – so I created an apple card today using the Outside In Stitched Apple Stackables. I used a few other dies to create the face for the cute apple – Woodland Critter Huggers for the cheeks and mouth and Large Wreath for the eyes.
I die-cut the parts using Lawn Fawn cardstock in Chili Pepper, Paper Bag, Cilantro, Ballet Slippers and Black Licorice. Once I got everything pieced together, I added foam adhesive to the back to adhere my apple to a piece of rainbow patterned paper from the Really Rainbow 6×6 Petite Paper Pack.
For my sentiment, I embossed the words “you are my” from the Village Heroes set over black cardstock. I centered it at the top of my apple and adhered it down with foam adhesive.
To make the word “hero” stand out more, I die-cut it in black cardstock using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs. I centered and adhered these letters to my card panel with foam adhesive at the bottom of my card.
I hope you enjoyed this card! Sometimes the most meaningful cards are the simplest ones! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting, friends!
