I was browsing in Marks & Spencer last week and what did I spy only the cutest pack of wrapping paper for the bargain price of only €1.00. It's printed all over with "Thank You" in a really cool schoolkid-like style so I thought it would make a really nice (and cheap!) backing paper for some Thank You Teacher cards which I was planning on making! Now, I normally buy stuff and then never get around to making anything with it, but this time the paper was just so yummy I couldn't wait to match it with some cardstock and start playing!
The "Thank You's" are printed in a variety of bold colours but the ones that stood out for me were the green, red and orange so I chose cardstock to match those particular colours. I used some 135mm x 135mm blank white cards, cut the cardstock to 135mm x 135mm, cut the backing paper to 130mm x 130mm and then stuck one on top of the other.
The red is Bazzill Red Devil, the green is ColorCore Kelly Green and the orange is Bazzill Orange:
I used some Cuttlebug hearts and tags dies to cut out the embellishments and then printed the teacher and student name on some white cardstock. The hearts are inked with white ink (on the red and green cards) and with light blue (on the orange card) and then given a highlight with a Ranger Inkssentials Opaque White Pen. Finally with a felt tip black pen, draw some double parallel lines around the card, freehand (don't use a ruler - freehand adds to the effect!) and you're done!
The good news is, we have two kits to give away to some lucky winners. HOW TO WIN: Simply become a follower of the blog, post a comment below and we'll pick two random winners from the entries. In the kit you'll get white card blanks and envelopes, enough pre-cut cardstock, backing papers and ready cut embellies to make three cards, plus you'll also get a fabby Ranger Inkssentials Opaque White Pen.
Best of luck!
