Apples from the Teacher

When I saw this week's freebie at Delightful Inspiration, I just knew what I wanted to do with it. I know A LOT of teachers so I decided I wanted to make teacher note cards. The image and sentiment were laid out on the computer and printed on pre-cut cardstock. Getting the layout on the computer so that everything was centered the right way was the hardest part. After that, I just had to watercolour the apples with SU Ruby Red and Mellow Moss. This is a set of six cards for a friend that I'll give for Christmas. What I love is that I can just change the name, and reprint them and I have my Secret Santa gift done too. I think the boxes were harder to make than the cards!

They are 9*13 cm - reponse card size I think. If you know the name of the size let me know.

Delightful Inspiration - Use this week's digi
ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Under the Tree
