GCD Studios Card For Teacher

Hi Everyone!

As we near the end of the school year, I am reminded that one of my favorite things to do for my kids' teacher is to make a special card and include a gift.

The Pure Bliss Collection from GCD Studios has an alphabet paper that is just perfect for a teacher card. It was a MUST USE to create my card today.


I started by die cutting 2 stars using my Silhouette. The size of the stars are 5inches in diameter. You could also use Spellbinder dies or free hand cut the star shape.



Create a card by scoring the bottom star at the top and adhering to the back of the top star.



Then I punched 3/4 inch strips of paper with my scalloped edge punch and adhered them on the card, cutting away the excess.



I made my own garland from heart punches sewn together. The paper pack also comes with a sheet that looks like small journaling tags. I used one to stamp my sentiment.

I embellished my card further with stickers and pink enamel dots. You could even hole punch the top of the card to transform it into a tag!

Supplies:
Paper-Pure Bliss-Alphabet #2019, Pink Honeycomb #2023, Journal Tags #2025, Label Stickers #2033
Stamp-Papertrey Ink
Punches-scalloped edge punch and 3 heart punch from Stampin' Up!
other: Silhouette, enamel dots Ambrosia

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
