This fabulous idea popped into my inbox a few weeks ago courtesy of a fellow Stampin' UP! demonstrator.
Since we were away at Disney before the Christmas break, DS's teacher will be receiving these when the kids return to school in the New Year:
The card bases are Very Vanilla Cardstock and I cut layers of the same to 4 X 5 1/4 inches before running them through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I wrapped a piece of Always Artichoke Seam Binding (which is carrying over to the Occasions Mini - YAY!) around the embossed layer before attaching it to the front of the card.
The letters were stamped using the Lovely Letters Alphabet and Always Artichoke Ink. I punched them out using my Scallop Circle Punch and adhered them to the front of the using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Easy Peasy! Eight cards in under 1/2 hour! What do you think?
