Teacher Gift Set  


Good evening all my blogging buddies! I received an email today from my nearest and dearest friend, Jennifer, demanding requesting that I add another post to my somewhat neglected new blog. Then she proceeded to send me pictures she had taken of cards I have made. How, umm, thoughtful?

So here is a gift set I made for my son's teacher at the beginning of the school year.

I used Tilda with Curls colored with SU reinkers.  The ribbon is from my stash and the pearl brad is American Crafts Elements.  I cut apart a Prima Pearls and Swirls for the bling.

I'm not sure why Tilda looks so washed out but I did use a flesh tone to color her!  I also used Stickles and Crystal Effects for her shoes and roses.

The flowers are Prima with a die from SU for the leaves.  The red rose was white but it didn't match very well so I used my SU reinkers to color it.  I dry embossed all the dps for a little more texture...and because it's just a fun effect!

I finished off the inside of my card with the saying, "A teacher effects eternity, he can never know where his influence stops" ~Henry Adams.  (And yes, Jennifer obviously took the pictures AFTER we signed the card.  How embarrassing!) :o)

The gift box I decorated for the card.

The inside of the box with the card wrapped up all nice and pretty!

Last but not least, the altered tin I made and filled with all sorts of yummy chocolates for my son's AMAZING teacher!

I apologize for the ridiculously long post.  Thanks for sticking it out!  Until next time...

I love how you can use red and black colors! They are definately striking like someone already mentioned. I would have never thought to use those two colors with the image you picked! Bravo!
