Teachers Plant Seeds of Knowledge–C4C #198


Happy Saturday! It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! Today’s challenge is to do something related to back to school, so I decided to make a teacher card.

My card is pretty simple—I stamped three images from Abstract Art with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with different colors of embossing powder. The sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Teaching, was done with white embossing powder. I popped the whole panel up on foam on a Primitive Cream card stock base and finished it off with matching enamel dots. Simple, but I like how it turned out.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set with Black Licorice ink.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you.

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C198.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
