Teacher Appreciation Card

Hi there We R fans, Aimee here!

It’s all about the Teacher this week on the blog; I decided to make a thank you card. This is just a thought, but I’m sure some teachers might get a bit tired of the association of an apple so I decided to get creative a change it up a bit Using the Shine Collection.

I knew I was going to make a 5 x 6 ½ inch card {this is my go to card size}.  I started with making a plain white envelope with the new 1-2-3 Punch Board. I love the fact that the size chart is right inside the flap. {The size I needed is right on top so it was easy to refer to!}

I then selected my paper from the 12×12 Shine Paper Pad. I just love this paper, and it was just perfect for the saying “shine bright like a diamond”. I cut my paper to 6 ½ x 10 and folded in half with the bone folder from the punch board. Next I found some scrap cardstock that I had, to die cut the diamond using the new Gems Shape Cutting die and my Evolution.

I actually used 2 different colors and you can see the yellow cardstock {I think it helps make the diamond shine}.

I adhered the 2 pieces of card stock together, and used foam adhesive to make the diamond “pop” off the card. I also used the Shine Cork Stickers to give the diamond a sparkle effect.

I printed the sentiment with my computer using the font “parley” and used foam adhesive to adhere it.

I hope you enjoyed my alternative to an apple idea! Do you have any ideas for teachers other than an apple?

  1. Wonderful card and thorough description so thank you! So wish the background paper was available in other colorways. I would buy a punch in pastels, primary colors, black or grey.
