Teacher Card Gift Set – Card 1

Last year I made a set of cards for my children’s teachers as a gift and this is the first one in the set. This card uses a lovely Hero Arts Stamp – Bird on a Branch and was stamped using distress stain(Broken China).  I was really happy with how it stamped as I haven’t done much stamping with distress stain as I normally use the inks.  I wanted to keep the card pretty simple as I had to make a few of them so used my favourite sizzix embossing folder (dots) to give some texture to the white card.  I also ran the envelope through my big shot with the embossing folder to make it ‘match’ the card and was really happy with the result.  The details that I added to the envelopes really helped draw the cards together as a set.

Stay tuned for the other 2 cards in the set.  Thanks for visiting my blog.
