This year back to school time has been crazier than it’s ever been.

EVERY SINGLE TEACHER deserves a card!!! And every parent helping their kids “virtual school” at home deserves one too. And let’s not forget every single kid that is dealing with school in a way they’ve never had to before.

Here are two back-to-school themed cards I made with the Harvest Hello stamp set and the coordinating Apple Builder Punch

We started our 7th year of homeschooling this year and while most things are the same as they were last year, one of the perks of homeschooling is that you can change things up quickly when you need to.

Card making can be an art class for the kids and therapy for mom.

 

Let’s start with a card for an A+ Teacher…

Paper Sizes:
Whisper White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Cherry Cobbler embossed: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Cherry Cobbler Plaid: 2-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
Circle Size: 2-3/8″

 

This first card checks 3 things off the Fall Stamping List:

  1. Make a card with an apple
  2. Make a card with something woodgrain (I used the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder)
  3. Send a card to a teacher

Paper Sizes:
Just Jade card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Just Jade embossed: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Bumble Bee Plaid: 2-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
Circle Size: 2-3/8″

 

This “Welcome” card could be sent to a new teacher, a new student or even a new Stampin’ Up! demonstrator (the Starter Kit is a GREAT deal!!)

Tip for the Banner End on the Plaid Paper:

I used my Paper Trimmer to find the center of my paper and then I made a cut from about 3/8″ to the end. Then I used my Paper Snips to cut from each bottom corner to the top of the center cut I made with my Paper Trimmer to create the banner end.

 

Whether you add an apple or not, I hope you’ll make a card and send it to a teacher or student to encourage them this week.

Happy Stamping!
