This is Agnes welcoming you to another Cut Cardstock blogpost. Today I am sharing with you what I think turned out to be a great card.This card came to mind after talking to a dear friend of mine who is a school teacher, and because I know she does a wonderful job with her students I wanted her to know how much she is truly appreciated.
I used it for the card’s base, I also used it for some of the embellishment shadows and for my greeting. The patterned paper is from Pink Paisley: Memorandum and Atlas and you also can find them at the Cut Cardstock store.
I fuzzy cut the clipboards from the Memorandum patterned paper, die cut the shadows using my die cutter (Cricut Explore) and adhered them to the front of the card. I then punched out some circles using a paper punch, die cut some stars and the letters a, b and c using some thin dies and layered them on top of the clipboard as shown in pics.
I then used another thin die and cut the Hello and glued on top.
I also added some smaller stars to the front and to the inside.
I loved how this Esse cardstock performs. Despite is a 100 lbs. cardstock I had no problems using my thin dies to cut some of the embellishments. I also didn’t have any problems cutting the chipboards shadows when I used my die cutter and you can see how small those tiny cuts are.
Here is a close up of the greeting.
And here is the completed card with a peek at the inside.
I know my friend will be thrilled and I know she will frame it to display it in her classroom.
I hope you like it too.
As always, we appreciate your visit.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Note: The school is an image from the My World Cricut Library and was cut at 2-1/4″ tall and the clipboards from Sportsmania.
