CSAYL - Teacher's Pet

Over at CSAYL this week, the challenge is to create a card for a teacher. The winner of this week's challenge will win the chance to be a guest designer for one of our future challenges. Here is my card:

I went with a CAS card this week using a cute stocking image from my Tiny Treats: Christmas set which I coloured with copics. These were punched out with 1 1/4 " circle punch. I didn't have a teacher stamp so I printed my sentiment from the computer and drew a frame around for a border. Finally I embossed this layer with my linen impression plate before layering on some Real Red cardstock and adhering to  my Kraft base.

On the inside I used another computer generated sentiment to match the fonts and stamped the snowflake image from Tiny Treats and coloured with a copic marker. I added another frame, embossed with my linen impression plate and matted the layer on some Real Red cardstock.

Check out the other ladies' gorgeous projects over at the CSAYL blog and don't forget Christmas is creeping up so why not link up your creation too!
