Thursday Teacher Appreciation and Core'dinations

Happy Thursday!

Core'dinations gave the DT an assignment to create something for Teacher Appreciation Day.  I LOVED this idea and really broke into my supplies for this.  I love to give notes to the boy's teachers.
So I created a card.
1.  I made  a standard A2 base in Core Essentials and sanded the edges.
2.  Using Black Magic cut to 4x5.25.
3. Score the edges and sand.  I wanted a more used look to the chalkboard so I sanded pretty heavily.
4.  Using stamps I stamped some star embellishments and the word teacher using my The Alley Ways Stamps and heat embossed them.
5.  Using the 110lb. smooth cardstock I stamped, colored and cut out various elements and arragned them on the card.

This was a totally fun card to make.  I got to include all my favorite things- playing with cardstock, stamping and coloring!

cardstock- Core'dinations
stamps- The Alley Way Stamps
ink- hero arts, memento
spectrum noir markers

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project (fingers crossed I can photograph it tonight! LOL)  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day
