Teacher appreciation card for Day 5

Teacher card for Day 5 of the October Release Countdown.

Another month has rolled by and it’s time to begin the MFT October Release Countdown! For Day 5, I made a fun teacher appreciation card with the new BB Virtually the Best stamp set and the Let’s Connect Die-namics.

These two products totally adapt to the strange and scary times that we are living in, but in a positive way. Birdie Brown’s fun characters are easy to personalize and color, to represent a specific teacher or student. Now they actually look like some of my son’s friends and teacher!

I started by adhering some patterned paper from the Happy Trails and Woodgrain Whimsy paper pads onto an A2 panel of  Smooth White Card Stock. Then I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and the smaller rectangle die from the Let’s Connect Die-namics.

Next, I stamped the teacher and the book shelf, with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, on an0ther same sized panel of Copic friendly card stock and colored them. I also stamped the four kids, one of them twice and die cut them with the speech bubbles from the Let’s Connect Die-namics.

With a couple of pen strokes, I turned one of the boys into a girl with straight black hair and glasses. Before adhering the speech bubbles to my panel (with thin foam squares), I die cut a frame and stand for the computer screen. I also heat embossed the sentiment in white, onto a hand cut banner of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock. As a last touch, I added a fussy cut apple from the BB Class Act stamp set. It was the perfect fit!

That’s it from me for today. Head on to the MFT Blog for more info about the October Release, which will be available in the MFT Store on October 6, 10.00 AM EDT.
