Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Mini Slimline Card for Teachers!

Hello there, friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you today. I am excited to be sharing a mini slimline card that would be perfect for sending to the special teachers in your life.

One of my friends, Jenn Shurkus is a teacher – a crafty teacher in fact! I wanted to send her a little card to congratulate her on all the amazing, virtual teaching she has been doing since the pandemic started. But even though I am turning this into a “crafty teacher” card, you can totally customize this idea to fit any teacher in your life.

The main stamp and dies I’ve used for this project include the My Favorite Things Virtually the Best and Mini Meows sets. I also cut a trio of windows with Simon’s Mini Slimline Windows die.

To lend to the crafty theme of this card, I paired up the teacher and cats with Art Impressions’ Matchbook Craft Room set. I also used a couple of Lawn Fawn stamp sets to add accents to my scene.

One other thing I did to make this card super-special, was decorating the inside! I don’t always decorate the inside, but I am so glad I did for this card. It really finishes off the scene and the sentiment ties in the cats that I included.

Don’t forget that you can swap out images or the theme that I used on this card to fit the teacher YOU want to send a card to. The cats could be swapped out for dogs; the craft room elements could be swapped out for the kids included in the Virtually the Best set. Use your imagination and make this card your own!

  1. Your card is adorable. I enjoyed your story about Jenn’s cats. I have a tuxedo cat also and love hearing about how they are are are all so different. I really enjoyed watching you color the cats. I always seem to have problems with that. Thank you for showing us this cute card.

  2. Loved this card and it fits Jenn. Not to mention she is one of the sweetest people on earth. This is a great card for her and love that you put in her three “children”.

  3. Gorgeous card, you are an awesome friend to Jenn. I’ve followed her blog for a while but have never yet been able to take one of her classes. I learn lots from her blog posts so can imagine how much she can pack into a class x
