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!
