Thank You Teacher {Teacher Appreciation Part 1}

Hello! It's Teacher Appreciation Week and I spent most of the weekend working on cards and gifts for my kids' teachers. Next year I definitely need to start earlier! But I managed to get some really great things made. 

First up is the card I made for Mr. D, Zach's Science Teacher.  I used the image Mad Scientist Tobie by Some Odd Girl. That is actually a magnet that can be removed from the card. 

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and then adhered it some adhesive magnet paper which I had cut on the Silhouette. After that I coated it in Glossy Accents and let it dry overnight. I used some dimensional foam squares to attach it to the card, I think these should come off the magnet easily so he can use it. 

Here is how the card looks without the magnet attached:

And a closer look at the magnet:
