Teacher Appreciation (WT221)

It's interesting that today's Ways To Use It Challenge was called, "Creative Images." We were to create our own images using punches, create a shaped card such as a flower to create our image, arrange brads or buttons to create an image or draw out our own and cut it out of card stock. I actually made two of these cards last night for two of my son's teachers. He's on an I.E.P. and has really had a lot of help and support from his Special Needs Math teacher and his Study Skills teacher. My "Creative Image" is the chalk board on this Teacher Appreciation card. I used Basic Black and Creamy Caramel card stocks, Close to Cocoa Marker, and a White Gel Pen to create the chalk board. I mitered the corners and, after assembling, rounded the corners with the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch. This was a fun card to make! I hope the teachers who receive them enjoy them along with their little gifts. Thanks for stopping by!!
