Hello friends and welcome back to the Maker Forte blog! It’s almost that time to get out your “Thank You, Teacher” cards ready!

Today, I am sharing 2 cards with you that I made using Maker Forte and Hedgehog Hollow stamps and papers.

For both cards, I used the School Days Paper Pack. For my first card, I also used the Teach From the Heart stamp set. I used one of the stamps to create a pattern in the background in pink ink. I used the same stamp on a piece of black card stock. I stamped the image with Color Hive Clear Embossing Glue Ink Pad. I sprinkled some white embossing powder on the stamped image and then melted the powder with my heat tool. I layered all my papers and cardstocks and adhered them together using double sided tape.

For my 2nd card, I used the Back to School Sentiments and Cutouts (coming soon!!) for my sentiment. These are able to be foiled, but I loved the way it stood out in black ink, so I left it the way it was! To create a 3D effect, I used the Cutout as a shadow behind my sentiment and attached my sentiment using 3D foam squares. To create some additional 3D effects, I cut out the little highlighter and rulers (from another piece of the same paper) and then attached them with 3D foam squares.

These cards are perfect for making in bulk! Now, I’m off to make a few more of them to give to my kids’ teachers!! Thank you so much for stopping by the Maker Forte blog today! Xoxo, Amanda
