Teacher cards 2013 - instalment #2

Here is the second in the series of 2013 teacher cards that I created for my girls' lovely teachers, this one being for my small girls Year One classroom teacher.

I absolutely LOVE Year One.  For both of my girls, it was a massive year of growth and transformation in their education.  From the beginning of the year when they are just working out sounds, to the end of the year where they are capable of reading simple chapter books by themselves.  Watching them progress and having the words take on meaning for them is pure magic :-)

Both of my girls were blessed with the same incredible Year One teacher, who is so perfectly placed to be teaching this year level.  This is the card that I created for her...

The theme of this card was inspired by the beautiful soft colours of the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paperwhich I also used to create the matching envelope that you can see peeking out underneath the card.

It's similar in style to yesterday's card, with the Postcard (wood/clear) background and grungy feel, but I replaced the butterfly with a floral embellishment instead.

I love the detail on this one - a watercoloured flower from Flower Shop (wood/clear), perfectly cut out with the co-ordinating Pansy Punch (save 15% when you bundle the stamps and punch together - wood mount and clear mount options available!)  The centre is embellished with lashings of different sized Pearl Basic Jewels

So there you have number two in my series of teacher appreciation cards for the year. The next ones are quite different in style...

Which is your favourite so far..?
