We have a thank you theme happening at the new Fusion Card Challenge along with a photo of apple and notebook paper background cookies that inspired me to direct my card to a teacher!
I opted to not use the sketch this time and went straight to this old paper pack from Recollections that has great school-themed patterns. There is a sweet tiny stamp set from Ink to Paper called Beautiful Bouquet: Teacher. I used one of those sentiment and white embossed it on the smallest of the Charming Tag dies - also from Ink to Paper. I fussy cut the tiny apple after coloring with Tombow markers and adhered it with a tiny library clip. The thank you sentiment (Handwritten Thank You) is a favorite die of mine and is from The Stamp Market.
