No.1 Teacher

Hi all! I have a card made using a beautiful image from Whiff of Joy Stamp's Back 2 School collection to share with you today.

I used the lovely No. 1 Teacher for my card. Isn't she a cutie? I had fun coloring her.

The image is stamped on Copic X-Press It! cardstock then colored with Copic markers. It's then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die. The piece is then inked with antique linen while the paper was still in the die. The image is matted using a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Scalloped Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together. The sentiment piece is made the same way only the layers are cut using dies from Classic Ovals Large and Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die sets.

The patterned paper is from It's the Little Things collection by Fancy Pants. The sentiment is from the General Sayings II set also by Whiff of Joy Stamps.

That's it for now. Have a happy day! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
