Teacher Appreciation Cards

I can hardly believe that the school year has almost finished!  I made these cards for my children to give their teachers.
A few months ago, I bought the patterned TPC Papers at Michaels.   The solids are cardstock from my stash, with the exception of the red which is on the back of some Gartner's patterned paper.  I also used metallic cardstock for the apple stem and letters.
The apple was cut at 2.5 from Doodlecharms.  It is popped.  The inchies were cut from George and Basic Shapes (with a shadow) and I used Pooh Font Set for the letters.  I had to resize them in Design Studio in order to fit the inchies.  I embossed the top layer of the inchies with the centre of one of the flowers in my Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder.  I inked everything!

I will enter this card in this week's Cuttlebug Challenge ~ Inchie Projects

Don't forget about the Canada Day Blog Hop on July 1. 
Everybody is invited and there are some giveaways too!

And here's an outtake.  I was taking photos of the cards when our new little kitten jumped up on my table.  I couldn't resist posting the photo!

Dear Kate, your cards are wonderful! As a teacher, I can assure you that I would be more than delighted to receive one like that! I love the embossing on your inchies! Very clever to use the centers of the flowers to emboss them!

Great job!
