Today I am honored to be doing a collaborative post with a dear blog friend, Marcie Sharp of Sharp Designs: Cardmaking in the Country. Marcie is having a weekly collaboration post each week for 2016. For this week's theme she and I decided on "Teacher Valentines." I couldn't wait to play with this globe die that I just purchased last Wednesday.
In my stash I found this wonderful map paper by BasicGrey. A few months ago I sorted half of my 6x6 collections by color; I even used sandwich bags to hold color scraps smaller than 6x6 and placed each baggie in with the 6x6 pieces of the same color. The piece of salmon ledger was a little scrap; I punched a heart from the top right corner (heart hole now covered by the purple Bazzill circle.) I love using up scrap pieces! The speckled aqua paper was also a scrap in the blue section; I chose it because I like the contrast with the salmon color.
Here is my complete teacher valentine:
I used the current card sketch at Fusion challenge blog for my inspiration:
Now hop on over to Marcie's blog to check out her teacher Valentine and let her know June sent you :)
