We all made four cards using this (I know, you only see three, but I couldn't fit my fourth one in the picture. You'll see it below. I chose to make the same card with different buttons and ribbons. Each card is a
4 1/4" square card....I like this little note size...it's nice to give these little note cards instead of a full-size card sometimes. In fact, I'm going to put these in the mailboxes of my teacher colleagues on the first day of school. A nice way to start off the new year!
On each card, I used the Best Teacher sentiment and the apple. I colored the apple and a couple of the words on my computer. The paper is from the new digital paper pack called Academic Hodge Podge. The actual paper that is in the pack is a tan color. I changed the color (using the GIMP software) to the same red as I used on the apple. It took about 10 minutes to change the color because I had to change all the little nooks and crannies in the letters. Easy, but a little time consuming. But I love the red, ivory, and black together!
To change it up a bit, I used different ribbons. Here I used a pretty apple ribbon and on the previous one I just used red grosgrain. I used red buttons on two and ivory buttons on the other two. I tired all of them up a little differently. Oh, and I used the Labels 7 die to cut and emboss the sentiment. This die looks like a book so I thought it was a good choice.
