Glad You're My Teacher

Happy Monday, everyone!  It's my day to post over at Digi-Mama's, and I want to share a card I made for my 4th grader's new teacher.  She's new to the school, so I wanted to make her feel welcome.  Here it is:

I got this sweet little crayon box from the new Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) Primary Supplies Cutting Files set.  I printed and cut the box in three layers...the back layer with the crayons, the yellow layer of the box with the "crayons" word, and the green stripes layer.  I assembled the pieces and stamped a little face from the Peachy Keen March 2013 Stamp of the Month set.  The background pattern is from the PPPR School Days Penmanship Digital Paper Pack.  I stamped a fun sentiment on a shape from the PPPR Layered Labels 2 Cutting Files set.  I added stitching lines using my Silhouette Cameo.  I just created an inset shape and changed the line to a dotted line.  Then, I grouped the shapes and printed and cut them.  The sentiment is actually a SNEAK PEEK of a stamp set I designed for Pink by Design (it should be available really soon).  I added some ribbon, and my little card was all done.  I got my daughter to write a sweet message on the inside for her teacher.  I'm hoping it will help make her Monday more bearable. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll be back later in the week with more projects.  Have a great Monday!
