I got started on this week's Make it Monday challenge on Monday... but finally finished it today! LOL! Since my kids don't go back to school until next Tuesday, I thought maybe I would finally get some "back to school" cards completed for their teachers this year. One down, one to go!
I used several school-themed PTI sets: Teacher's Apple with the brand new die; School Time; and Tag-its #6. I also used the medium scallop border die.
My color scheme is Harvest Gold and Blueberry Sky (our school colors - blue and gold), and Pure Poppy for the apples. I used a strip of paper from the Blueberry Sky pattern paper pack. I made the garland with just a single layer, taped the baker's twine across the back with my ATG gun, and then attached a couple of small pieces of foam adhesive to the back of each apple, and attached them into place. I tied the ends to a brad in each corner of the panel.
I also finished the inside of the card, using a sentiment from Signature Greetings that was just perfect for the card!
Now I need to make one more card for the other boy's teacher. I'm so glad to have finally given Teacher's Apple some love - I've had the set for a while and always liked it, but not used it very much!
Thanks for stopping by!
