Hi everyone! I am a self-professed craft-a-holic.
If it's a craft, I've tried it.
I am really into cardmaking with stamps and my Silhouette Cameo or my Brother Scan n Cut.
I also enjoy scrapbooking, polymer clay, and jewelry making.
Hello There! Today I have a super cute Thank You Teacher card. With the kiddos just returning to school I wanted to give my daughter’s Special Education teacher a thank you card for to show our appreciation for everything she does for our Emily.
I used the Doodlebug Flea Market 6x6 paper pad. I stamp out the owl and tree branch from the Lawn Fawn So Owlsome stamp set that was just released recently. I stamped three branches on brown pattern paper from the pad, two owls in a teal polka paper and two owls on yellow wheat tone on tone pattern paper. I fussy cut and paper pieced the two owls, coloring their beaks in with an orange Copic marker. I used my black Memento marker to go along all of the edges to cover up my not-so-perfect fussy cutting.
I die cut a stitched circle out of pattern paper as well as a lacey circle. I layered these two circles on top of each other. Taking the three branches I arranged them to look like one tree, covering the seams with some leaves that I also fussy cut from a sheet of pattern paper. To finish off the card I layered one of the cut apart sentiments from the paper pad, notching the end into a fish tail. I attached a pumpkin paper clip, from Doodlebug, to the sentiment and now my card is done. I love how cute it turned out! Even though I fussy cut the images, they are so small that it really doesn’t take much time. Do you like to fussy cut?
