I was a little baffled when I went to make the beginning of the year gift for Zach's teacher this year. You see, he has a male teacher this year. I usually make a cute set of note cards for the teachers but Mr. D just didn't strike me as the cute note card type.
So we settled on a Dunkin Donuts giftcard instead. Of course, I still needed a card to put the gift in. I was lost on what image to use. So I reached out to my Kit and Clowder friends and they all suggested Mo Manning. I had never looked at her shop, but I trusted my Clowdies and they certainly came through for me!
It was hard to decide on an image, but I did eventually. I went with the Air Guitar image.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers (pin-able palette below). The patterned papers are leftover from last year. I printed and cut the sentiment with Silhouette Studio. I was going to put stars on this, but Mr. D is the science teacher so I thought these little atoms would be more fun, they are also from the Silhouette Studio, as is the Back to School sentiment. I was really pleased with how this card turned out, especially since it started with me having not a clue what I was going to do.
Here is the pin-able color palette.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
