An Apple for the Teacher

This card was made specifically for some challenges – I will list them in a minute!

I think this card will be for my son’s teacher!! Here is how it looks:

An Apple to say Thanks to your Teacher!!

An Apple to say Thanks to your Teacher!!

To create this card I used the Fall Fun set, yet another old set from Stampin’ Up! I had some red 3/4″ grosgrain ribbon and this burlap trim that I won in a giveaway that I used.  Came together very easily after I fussy cut the apple and the leaf!

I based my card on this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch # 91 –


And I am entering  this challenge over at The Card Concept – Challenge # 18: Back to School

I feel like my card fits the Classy & Elegant style as shown on the blog!!


Cupcake Inspirations is having a challenge # 277 – Here is the photo:

Another challenge I am entering is Docerela Creations Blog – Challenge # 69: School

I am linking this up to the Simply Create Too blog- challenge # 69 Show Us Something New – what is new about my card is the burlap trim that is featured under the apple!

I am really happy about being able to join so many challenges!! And to boot, I already have a great thank you card for my son’s teacher!  How fun to create beautiful things for people!  Have a wonderful day!!

I will be back tomorrow showing you something I made for some ladies at my son’s school!!

See you then!

    Fabulous card Taunya! I love your clean look and that apple is so perfect. But what I really love is the kraft card base, reminds me of making my own book covers in school from grocery bags, such fun memories. Thank you so much for playing along with us at The Card Concept.

    COOL!! And given that I’m a teacher, I well know your son’s teacher will be delighted when she receives this! What a wonderful way to let her know that she’s appreciated; gratitude has a most wonderful ‘reciprocal magic’ about it, so don’t be surprised when an unexpected surprise comes back your way! The apple, the pretty ribbon, the kraft background…a recipe for fabulous!! Super sweet, super thoughtful, super heartwarming = YOU!!
