My Teacher

My son starts preschool in 2 weeks, so I made his teacher a card last night, that he can "sign" to tell her how excited he is for the start of the new year!  I'm also making her a gift to go with it, that I'm hoping to finish up this weekend - so you will be seeing that soon! 

I love using primary colors when it comes to school cards/LOs, all the paper for this card were from my stash!  I used Locker Talk for the 'My Teacher' sign and CTMH Art Philosophy for the card base and front/inside layers - I LOVE this cart!  I embossed the front layer with my Cuttlebug using the Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Traffic Jam.'  I wanted to add some twine but I didn't have the right color - it will be here soon though, with the order I placed for their newest colors that I couldn't resist over the weekend!  :-)

And when I went to make an envelope to go with it, I realized that even though I have my 12x24 mat to make bigger envelopes, I don't have any 12x24 cardstock - oops!  So I will add that to my list of things to get so I can get an envelope made soon for this card!  I had intended to stamp the inside of the card and the envelope with a small apple but I didn't have one - so I will either cut one with my cricut or see if I can get lucky and find an apple stamp in the dollar bin at Michael's!

I left the inside blank so we could write a message to his teacher and he could sign it!
