Special Teacher Card

Here's a card I made for my son's 1st grade teacher and for the Peachy Keen Challenge #35: Just Cards: Teacher theme.  You can find the challenge here.

I used Bazzill cardstock and various patterned papers from my scrap stash.  (I think the school-theme paper came from Michael's.)  I cut the little boy and the sentiment label with the Cricut Lite "Playtime" cartridge.  I hand wrote the sentiment with a pun I made up myself (haha).  I hid the little boy's face with my Gypsy and stamped him a Peachy Keen face from their "Wide-Eyed Kids Face Assortment."  Then I added a little doodling to his cheeks and clothes.  He has a "Z" on his shirt for school spirit.

Here's a picture of the card open.  I adhered the mints to the back of the card and used my 2 1/2" circle punch from Stampin' Up! to make a little window for the mint container to peek through.  That way the teacher gets a little treat, and it serves as an element on the card.

Hope you like today's project!  Go check out the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to enter your teacher-themed card, and Good Luck!
