Thank You card for K2

Card for K2 TeachersAs the “coordinator” for the K2 graduation party, I have to well, coordinate the party.  This includes getting the cards together for all the teachers that work in Sean’s classroom.  There are 6 of them.

So, I went to Michaels, thinking I would find some inspiration, before I walk over to Scrapbook Island to get some apple stuff.  I found these totally cute Recollections frames for the new Fuji Film Polaroid cameras.  I was thinking these would be really cute as a card!  So I picked them up, along with the gingham fabric tape (a steal at 70% off), and the little flags, and went over to the Island.

Surprise, there were NO APPLES in the store.  None.  No apple paper, no apple stickers, NO APPLE embellies!  So, I was over in the school isle and I found this really cute red Theresa Collins “Hello My Name Is” paper.  I was in love with the red, craft, and black combo.  It worked perfectly with the craft frames and the fabric tape!  So, I picked up the red polka dots and the cute craft letters (one set of letters for all 6 cards!).  Then I saw MY FAVORITE Maya Road star pins!  I was out anyway, so I picked them up.  Then I needed one more star thing…  This star ribbon did it.  I got a yard, and away I went.

When I got home, I pulled out my Studio Calico wood veneer stars to complete the “your a star” look…

As I was making the card, I realized that I could cut a hole in the card so that the frame would pop into place, and then come off the card so that the teacher could use the frame on their desks!  Woot!  A double duty card and gift!

And there you have it…  My “Your a Star” Thank You note!


ps…  I have officially blown my no crafty shopping this year.  Time to start anew.
