An Alternative Teacher Thank You
It reads: "Thanks for taking me under your wing" and there are no pencils or schoolhouses or ABC's on it, but I still think it'd make a pretty, more sophisticated teacher thank you (maybe for an older student?). Again I used Clear Dollar's "Spread Your Wings" set, stamping in Jet Black Staz-On and shad-ing with Stampin' Up's watercolor crayons. Treated the Stampin' Up (Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip) and Bazzill cardstock (the olive-y color) to the paper distresser tool, and did lots of tearing for a rustic look, which I think is further enhanced with the diamond-embossed texture of the brown panel (Cuttle-bug's "Diamonds in the Rough" folder) and Ranger's "Frayed Burlap" Distress Ink around the edges of the bird panel. A Stampin' Up spiral clip finishes it all off. One more bird card to come!
