February 17, 2012 Teacher Appreciation (specials) Cards

Good evening everyone!
I know it is a bit early....but here is the "start" of my Teacher Appreciation project.
THE CARD:0) These little cards are for my son and daughter's specials teachers..... I say specials...but that also includes Speech, OT, Principal, Vice Principal.....etc. Where would we be without them, right?
My son  helped me today too! He loves the craft room.:0)

Ok, here is what I/we used to create the cute little apple cards.
I used the Gypsy to weld two little apples from the Recess Lite cartridge. The size of the cards are about 3x4, I thought it was just right to put in a cellophane bag with treats.;0) All the cardstock I used is from Recollections (ie Michael's). We tied a little tag (EK Success tag punch) on the stem using Raffia. The stamp came from a set by Stampendous, the ink was the black ink from Color Box. I used some clear embossing powder from Personal Stamp Exchange. Honestly...I am not even sure if they are still around...I think my friend Dawn gave it to me when we were stationed at Yokota AB in Japan.
I saw a really cool tip on My Creative Time on how to use the ink and embossing together, instead of writing in...I am adding the link to the page she has the VIDEO on. better, eh? episode 316

Have a great night everyone!:0)
