Decoupage Apple Teacher Card


I was asked to make a Teacher card for one of my co-workers and this is what I came up with. My friend, Catherine, recently gave me this cute little apple stamp as it seems we're always on the look out for apple stamps for teacher gifts! Thanks again, Catherine! :)

The original apple stamp had a happy face in the centre of it, but I decided not to ink up that part and instead draw in my own apple seeds. Then, to change it up a bit more, I choose to use some patterned paper on half of it for interest. I recently found these gorgeous onyx rhinestones and thought I'd add them as the embellishment to keep it simple as I think the rest of the card is busy enough. I kinda like how it turned out, I hope Michelle likes the card. :)

Here's a close up of the onyx rhinestones.

Here's an angle shot to show you the dimension of the layers. I used some new black dimensional dots so they blend in with the black cardstock.

Well, now that another mother's Teacher card is done for her child, I should probably get started on my own Teacher's gifts, eh? I'm such a procrastinator! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Sorry for the teasing ...... I didn't even think about that. I'm not due until the 7th of July so a little bit yet and according to my drs appt, I'm probably going to go full term!
