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!
A super cute and easy fun fold card, This has a teachers theme but can be adapted to whatever you wish

You Will Need
1 piece of card stock 11 3/4 Inch x 5 1/2 Inch
2 panels of patterned paper 1 1/2 inch x 5 Inch
1 piece of plain paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
1 piece of patterned paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
Glue/ double sided tape
Embellishments of your choice
Torn Edge Nesting Dies
A class Act Stamp and Die set by Clearly Besotted
Hunkydory Score Board
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers
Papermania Embossing powder (In Superfine Silver)
Begin by cutting your card stock to 11 3/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch
Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 Inch along the length
Place a tiny mark at 6 Inch on both edges and using your ruler score from the middle point of the middle column to the corner of the first score mark (see picture below)
Trim 1/4 off the 1st panel
Cut 2 panels 1.5 Inch by 5 Inch and stick these to the outer columns with the glue of your choice
In order to cut the 8 triangles, first cut a piece of plain paper stock to 5 Inch by 3 1/2 Inch. Mark this at 1 3/4 Inch on the short side and 2.5 Inch on the long side. Draw a diamond
Cut the diamond out and keep the 4 triangles from the edges. Next cut the diamond into quarters.
Stick these to the triangle panels on the card
Cut another piece of patterned paper 5 Inch by 3 1/2 inch and mark in the same way as you did with the plain paper. Cut down the diamond and apply to the front panel
Then embellish however you wish. I used the big shot to die cut 2 different sized torn edge rectangles.
I stuck one vertically
I stamped, coloured and die cu an unbranded teachers set I had and used these on the front panel. I then heat embossed the 2nd torn edge rectangle horizontally with the sentiment 'teacher you are a class act.
This card can be adapted to what ever you have in your stash and is super quick to make but a real eye catcher. Hope you have as much fun making it as I did creating it
Thanks for reading
