Teacher Thank You Card

It is hard to believe that school is out and Summer is in full swing!  I don't know where the time went!!  This school year seemed to fly by!  I am so sad that Emma will be leaving her teacher, she was amazing!  Emma has really lucked out the past two years and had fantastic teachers.  Anyhoo, here is my card, I hope you like it!

 I packaged the card in a glassine bag topped with a doily and tag.  I love packaging cards like that since I feel they are a gift in itself.  The tag was tea stained and topped with an apple die cut from the Teacher's Apple die.

 I got the idea for the little garland from a card that Melissa Phillips made some time ago.  I can't seem to find it otherwise I would link you to it. The paper I picked for the card is from Basic Grey's Oxford Collection.  I also used Classic Kraft and Vintage Cream from PTI.  The stamp sets I used are PTI's Teach & Inspire and Heart-2-Heart #3.

The "Thank You" sentiment was stamped onto a banner from the Bountiful Banners die.  The "ABC" was die cut using the Block Alphabet die and adhered to tags die cut from the Tiny Tags die.

 I love this saying!  It is just perfect for teachers of young children......precious!  I stamped the Library Card onto Vintage Cream cardstock.  I also stamped the tree image from the Teach & Inspire set.

I tucked a gift card behind the library card inside the pocket.  I die cut the pocket from the Library Pocket Die from PTI and stamped the lined image from the Teach & Inspire set across the pocket.  I also stitched around the edges of the paper.  I love how this turned out.  I played around with layers and pattern paper for lots of texture.  Emma was so excited to take this little gift to her teacher.

I hope you enjoyed stopping by today!
