Just A Scrappin Design Team 1 "Teacher" challenge
I used one of my very favorite Cricut cartridges "Simply Charmed". In addition, here's the down low on how I created this card.
Card base: Recollections 5 1/2 x 4 white
Layer 1: 5 1/2 x 4 Merigold Bazill
Layer 2: 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 Colobok Textured Black
Layer : 3 1/2 x 5 1/24 Recollections scrapbooking pencil paper then I used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom.
"Lined Paper w/ face: Simply Charmed cut at 3 inches. The cartridges cuts small tic lines so I went in a a fine tip pencil and made it with a bit more color.
"Thank You": I had actually made this card for a friend of mine for her son's teacher back in May so, as I fumbled through my ...clearing my throat.....more than 40 cartridge manuals I could not for the life of me remember which one I used. I have the Cricut Sheet as well (if you don't have this GET IT) and still couldn't find it...sorry.
String: I fudged a little and used the string instead of ribbon.
Apple: Red glitter paper using a apple punch.
To finish it off I went around the edge of the black paper and did a faux stitch.
