Harvest Hellos Clean and Simple Teacher Thank You Card

by Joanne James15. April 2020 21:02

A quick post today and I'm sharing a card using the current sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch:

I didn't manage to play along last week (I managed a so-so card, but wasn't thrilled with it and decided not to share!). All change this week though - as soon as I saw the sketch I knew what I was going to do with it. Here's my clean and simple creation:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I decided to go with a teacher thank you card. I know that schools here and all around the world are closed as we try and protect each other from this dreadful virus, however whether the Juniors go back to school or not next term, I figure there will still be the need for teacher thank you cards, so I'm getting organised!

I decided to add a trio of yellow pencils (this is from a retired Project Life stamp set) in the corner and over-stamped the bottom one with my thank you sentiment. I have a confession to make - as I came to write up my post I realise there were 4 stripes of ombre on the sketch, and I've only included 3 - oops! I genuinely hadn't noticed. I like to have odd numbers though, so I think my subconscious was probably responsible for the decision. I overlaid my pencils with a red apple from the 'Harvest Hellos' stamp set, coloured with Blends and punched out using my Apple Builder Punch and with a little tag and linen thread bow to finish.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

The warm weather has returned today so I made the most of it, getting some washing done and the children and I went on a nice bike ride this evening after dinner. I did sneak in a little crafting time too so have lots to share with you in coming days! Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I have quite a few friends who are teachers and I think there's more call than ever for teacher appreciation cards. Some are having to prepare and deliver recorded online or live online classes, some are going in to help key workers' children, but all are working outside their comfort zones and under difficult circumstances. Your card is beautiful and perfect for the sketch. I love the beautifully coloured shiny red apple and the little tag you attached. Vicky x
