http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ was to create a set of 3x3 cards. The true requirement was simply to make a set of 4, 3x3 cards.
I know teacher appreciation is this week so I wanted to make a fun and colorful set of cards for my daughter's teachers. If you haven't taken the time to thank the Teachers in your life, please do so. It would mean allot to them (I'm sure). Shhhh don't tell her teachers but they are going to get a wonderful boutique of cookies on Friday from a local bakery.
I took the inspiration from http://www.obsessedwithscrapbooking.com/2013/05/make-quick-mothers-day-card.html as the card she made the other day was just gorgeous. OH and I totally forgot I had this cartridge.
I also made a larger card for my mommy for mothers day using the same colors, but shhhh again don't tell her. :)
I used the Cricut imagine and Lori's Garden for the pattern papers.
I cut the flower on this card at 2.5" which bearly fits a 3x3 card.
I stamped the cards with Small Talk stamp set from Emma. I think it's so fun using the 3x3 stamp w/ the dots and the sentiment. I really wanted the THANKS to pop out so I used the black memento ink. The pink dots are rosebud ink.
I plan on making little envelopes but am running out of time right now I"ll make them in a while. :)
I added a pretty little lime button and some lime twine.
For 2 of them I just popped them up using foam dots, the other 2 I used an action wobble to make the flower float.
I think they turned out so pretty and can't wait for my daughter to give them to her teachers.
Hope you enjoy and
