Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by today! Please welcome back special guest designer Kelly Rasmussen! She has made this gorgeous tribal pattern for a very cool teacher card that would work wonderfully for a man or woman teacher. Please read on for more information and enjoy!
Hey everyone! School is in full swing for my kids and that means it’s time to spoil all those amazing teachers! A simple gift I like to do several times a year is a handmade card telling them how much they are appreciated along with one of their favorite snacks or drinks.
This card starts out with a stenciled background using the Hero Arts Tribal Shapes Stencil. To get into all those tiny spaces I used the Tsukineko Fantastix Bullet Tip Coloring Tool as my sponge. This tool has a sturdy pointed tip that is perfect for inking those small areas! The four ink colors used on the background are Hero Arts Rose Madder, Aegean, Mint Julep and Black.
Next, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Teacher Die from Bazzill Licorice Cardstock twice and adhered them together to add some stability. Since the stenciled background is so busy and bright I decided to put my sentiment on a strip of Bazzill Vellum so it would stand out a little more. I white heat embossed a message from the Simon Says Stamp Uplifting Thoughts stamp set and then wrapped the strip of vellum around the background. I popped up this panel with some foam adhesive on a Hero Arts Black Folded Card.
And for the finishing touch I covered the “teacher” die cut with a layer of Ranger Glossy Accents. Isn’t that shine just gorgeous!
Change up the colors of ink you use for the background and this card would be great for a male teacher as well.
Thanks so much for reading and thanks to Kelly for being our guest!
