Teacher Appreciation Cards

With great presents, comes great cards!  Right?!?

Today I have created cards to show 2 special teachers and 1 bus driver how they have been appreciated all year long.  I really used my Cricut Explore for a lot of this card.  It was easy peasy to just check which images I wanted and press cut.  PRESTO!  Depending on which Cricut you have, you may have to play with the proper sizes for your card.

-Base cardstock in Barn Red (X5637) cut at 8" x 6"-scored and folded at 4".
-Coordinating cardstock layer (I used non-CTMH alphabets and apples) cut at 3 3/4" x 5 3/4"
-Circle cut using Cricut at 2 3/4" using Cricut Art Philosphy Cartridge (Z1906)
-Scallop Circle cut using Cricut at 3" using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1906)
-Number border cut at 5 3/4" using Cricut Artbooking Cartridge (Z1686)
-Owl and Bus (non-CTMH) at 3" using Cricut Explore
-Black Exclusive Ink Pad (Z2105)
-Red and Green ribbon from stash

1.  Glue Number Border to printed cardstock.
2.  Create bow and tape to printed cardstock.
3.  Stamp "Thank you" to white circle.  Tape white circle to scalloped circle.  Tape in place.
4.  Glue together owl or bus image.  Using foam dots, adhere image to card.

On the inside of the card using white inked pen, I wrote "4 a great year!".  I think they will enjoy the cards and the Sticky Note Holders that I have made.

Stay blessed and Crafty!
