Thank you, teacher

I hear it's Teacher Appreciation Week. It's also almost the end of the school year when we traditionally give a card and/or a gift and/or flowers to the teachers at school.

I wish I could remember exactly where I saw this technique - somewhere out in blogland. Sorry if it's you and I didn't give credit. Anyway, I punched a square, rounded the corners, die cut an apple from the middle, and then added Glossy Accents all over the top. It's so puffy and I just think it's so cool! Can't wait to try it with more shapes and dies.

A little bit of ledger stamped background is perfect for this teacher card! It's a light gray so it doesn't show up really well in the photo (sorry about that.)
