Inspired By Stamping Release - You are a treasure!


Hi There!

I have a Teacher Thank you Card to share. 



I started with some darling patterned paper I have had in my stash and rounded the corners and added to my painted kraft card base. A length of of Riding Hood Red ribbon was added to the center of the card face next adding a length of vintage blue seam binding which was wrapped around the card front and tied in a fussy bow embellishing with a button, twine and tag showcasing my focal sentiment.  An apple was cut using my Cricut Expression using some more treats in my scrap pile and added to the card front.
Extraordinary was stamped on Kraft cardstock and hand-cut into a banner and applied at an angle across the apple. Last but not least the sentiment from Big Treasures was stamped in an oval die-cut layered onto a scalloped oval frame.  The decorative flourish was stamped just below the sentiment. For a finishing touch a red button with a twine bow was added to the lower right of the oval sentiment panel.  

Also playing in the Playground at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - All papers from the stash!

Thanks for popping in! I will be back tomorrow with another "new" release share!
