Teacher Card

Hi fellow crafters:) Last night I made my first Twisted Easel Card. It was rather easy to make and I love the interactive part to the card. Im so gong to be making more of these cards:)


I will be entering my card in the following challenges: Peachy Keen's Challenge #35 Just Cards Teacher and Sentimental Sundays Challenge 120 Back to School

Markers used for coloring
I used Peachy Keen's August 2012 Stamp Set  for the apples, the notbook paper, and the cute teacher. To color in the apples and the teacher I used Tim Holtz Distress markers.



I added Mode Podge Dimensional Magic to the apples (its like Glossy Accents, but more runnier). For the teachers eyes/glasses I used Glossy Accents. The cute tiny pearls are form Recollections, and the purple ones on the sentiment are Liquid Pearls.


For the teachers cloths I Paper Pieced some scraps from my scrap drawer, and also some paper from DCWV Latte Stack. The paper for the overall card is from My Minds Eye Home Collection, and Recollections Cardstock. My sentiment on the outside and the inside of the card is from My Creative Time's My Teacher Rocks Stamp Set . The cute swirly frame is from Peachy Keen's September 2012 Stamp Set.

Well fellow crafters, that's all for me right now. Thanks for stopping by, and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!
