Love...for all Teachers!

When you have five kids, you get to know many, many teachers in the community over the years and we have been so blessed to have so many GREAT teachers!! Many of my best friends are teachers and WE just L-O-V-E all teachers. My husband has been a high-school math teacher for the past 20 years...this year is his first year as an AP (Assistant Principal) at our high-school, so if you were wondering what an AP is,
that card is for him...the "World's Greatest AP"!
I made these 8"x 3.5" Teacher Appreciation cards using the Colonial White Die-Cut Cards & Envelopes pack (Z1738). I love the little wrap-around flap that can be covered with paper and embellished (shown at the bottom of these cards). Papers I used include Buzz & Bumble (X7164B) for the striped pattern and retired bulk Typeset (Juniper) papers (X7139B). Colors I used include Cocoa, Colonial White, Juniper, and Sunset. Stamp sets I used include Perfect Fit-Dad (C1542) for the "World's Greatest" image, For Every Occasion (D1187) for the "Thanks" sentiment, A Typeface (A1117) for the letters "ap", and the Cricut Artiste Collection "Kudos" (D1530)
stamp set for the medallion part of the ribbon.

These cards also fit the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this week...to share something created to show "Teacher Appreciation." I hope you will visit the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog now for more creative ideas and inspiration!

I like how you used these cards, you don't normally see them with the flap at the bottom! Great image and color choice too!
