Greeting Card Teachers

It is that time of year where we need to think about teachers cards. It has been a very strange school year and currently only one of my children is in school. In England at the moment there are limited years in school and Jack falls into the last year of primary school so he is back with just 14 of his year group. He asked me to make cards so he can take them in when they break up for the summer. To further complicate things Jack is currently being taught by Martha's teacher!

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies Used
A Class Act Stamp and Die set by Clearly Besotted
Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Paper Discovery Build a card Die
LRDS Creative slimline die
Spectrum Noir Finesse in Black
3 A6 Card Bases
Polkadoodles Tag Die
Embossing Ink 
Wow Embossing Powder in blue glitz
Foam Squares

I stamped and coloured the critters and accessories 

Using the Paper Discovery Card Base Die. I cut out a card base using one piece of A6 Card.
Using the Paper Discovery plain panel I cut a panel from the second piece of white card. Using a pencil I drew a faint guideline down the centre and at 3 regular intervals down the card. I marked the window die equally on each side with a sharpie at lined these up with my pencil guidelines. These were then die cut once on each line. 

Using the 2 rectangles that come in the paper Discovery set I die cut a border and coloured this with peacock Feathers.
The window frames were also coloured with peacock Feathers.

The card with the 3 hole was coloured in salty ocean

I used the middle piece of card that was left from making the border and coloured this in spiced marmalade. This was glued behind the salty ocean card.

The critters were each sat at a desk in the window space

The windows were then glued in and the border was glued onto the window card 

This was glued onto the card base.

A banner was die cut using the Polkadoodles tag die set and this was blended in the spiced marmalade and heat embossed teacher you're a class act"

Inside was stamped with the sentiment " Thank you for keeping us going"

This has been entered into the following challenges.

    1. Thank you. My 2 have been off since Marvh too, Jack only went back as he was year 6. Much to his annoyance while his little sister stayed home

    2. Grandaughter Holly was year 6 to but school was only taking so many back due to restrictians so she missed out saying bye to her friends as she is going to a different high school !

    3. Oh bless her I feel like they have missed out on so much. We are a village school so directly feed the local high school so all his friends are going with him. In that sense he is lucky x

  4. Great card! Thank you so much for playing along at my Crafting Happiness Challenge this week. Hope you’ll link up again!
