Teacher Appreciation Card


I am so excited to share that Emma asked me to stay on with her My Creative Time Design Team for another term! I had such a blast working with Emma and my teammates, and I absolutely adore her stamps. I am thrilled to continue! Thanks, Emma!


Today I am sharing a card made with two stamps from Emma's "My Teacher Rocks" set. This stamp set is perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week or any time you want to give a little something to your favorite teacher (we LOVE feeling appreciated, LOL). I just adore this little stamp with the note to bring an apple to the teacher! The cork paper that I ordered from Michelle Wooderson's Etsy Shop just arrived yesterday, and as soon as I got it in the mail, I decided I had to make a little bulletin board out of it to use with Emma's stamp! The cork paper is very soft and easily cuts with dies in the Cuttlebug. Because it is so soft, I adhered it to a piece of cardstock before popping it up. My little apple is cut at 1 1/4" from Create a Critter.

Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to meet the new design team!

Katie, this is PERFECT. I love that note with the pushpin on the cork board. I've got to look into getting some of that paper. I've got a zillion teacher appreciation projects to work on this weekend. My daughter has the best teacher. We try and get her things throughout the year but I really want to shower her with love this week. Thanks for being a teacher!!!! Oh and I'm super excited to continue working with you! Hugs- Glora
