Doodled Apple Teacher Thanks

I'm a wee bit jealous of those of you whose kids are out of school already! Our last day is June 14, which right now seems so far away. Looking on the bright side, the extra weeks do give me time to craft a few more teacher thank-yous. This lovely apple is from Betsy Veldman's What the Doodle: Apple collection by Papertrey Ink

I love that all of the What the Doodle collections (this is a monthly series) offer stamps, dies, coloring sheets, and watercolor sheets. I used one of the What the Doodle: Apple Coloring Sheets for this card, and the coloring is all with Copics.

Along the top of the trimmed-down coloring sheet is a word die-cut from Wet Paint Cuts die set. I lightly inked it with Raspberry Fizz ink using a sponge dauber.

Here's a closer look at the coloring, and you can also see how I added some Glossy Accents to the seeds.

Along the bottom, I layered some tilted panels in varying patterns and colors using Raspberry Fizz and Green Parakeet card stock, True Black Gingham patterned paper, and Pencil Me In patterned paper.

The pencil accent was done with Pencil Me In stamps and dies. too. I tied on a Tiny Tags die-cut using some Raspberry Fizz baker's twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!

Fabulous card that any teacher would cherish, Amy! All the details ... that torn edge notebook layer beneath, and of course, that adorable tag with the heart cutout! Oh yeah, and did I mention "amazing colouring"??? You've got it all in this 1 card :-)

The apple is just fabulous! Love the way you coloured it, so chic and cheerful :)
And, if that cheers you up a bit, in Poland all schools (primary, seconday and high) end the school year on the last Friday of June. So this year we're really lucky to get off as early as 24th! :)
