I created the beautiful wood look in my card by embossing Premium White Cardstock with Crafter's Companion's new Wood Grain Background Embossing Folder. I used Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Ink pads to create the warm brown color.
For the main image, I thought Swalk Slugs and Snails would be perfect for an elementary school teacher. I colored him using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (IB2, IB3, BT8, IG1, IG6, IG8, IG10, TN5, TN7, TN8, EB1, EB2, CT1, CT3, AND TB2).
To finish my card, I added a small piece of ribbon and stamped "Thank You" on matching cardstock. The Thank You sentiment is part of the Cute Companions Crafting Companions stamp set. Inside my card, I added the words, "Thanks for making 4th grade such a blast!".
I hope that I have inspired you to thank a teacher in your life. I'm sure they would appreciate a handmade card. Have a fabulous Thursday!
