for a special teacher

Hello everyone!!  Popping in with a card for the current Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try as well as the current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge because this month's challenge is to mix Reverse Confetti with Essentials by Ellen.  This week has been teacher appreciation and so I used the RC sketch to create a card for my son's teacher.  I used the RC stamp set All Apples as well as the matching dies.   Two apples were die cut from a RC quick card panel as were the leaves and stems.  The apple with the sentiment "for a special teacher" was stamped with a matching red ink and then die cut with the apple die.  Another quick card panel was trimmed down for the bottom of the card and then I added the red/white baker's twine.  I added the apples and I was finished with the front of the card.  For the inside I stamped a trimmed down piece of white cardstock with "thank you" from the Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks stamp set and the little heart.  A strip of the same black gingham paper was added to the bottom and then the piece was adhered to finish off the card.  I hope my son's teacher likes it!  I think I will also add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of the great outdoors.

Have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, Reverse Confetti quick card panels; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti and Essentials by Ellen; Dies:  Reverse Confetti; Ink:  Stampin Up! Real Red; red/white baker's twine
