We have  some teacher cards for you today since Back-to-School is right around the corner!

First up, a great shaped card by Mary Pat Siehl that showcase how sanding does most of the work for you:

Supplies: Core Essentials Cardstock, Silhouette Cameo, Alley Way Stamps, Memento Ink pads, Sand it Gadget and Dust Buddy

1. Start with a Silhouette image to create this fun shaped pencil card (Design ID #30675).
2. Using a Sand It,  sand each and every piece of the card to give it that distressed look. I don’t know about you but my kids totally beat up their pencils and this makes it look realistic.
3. Adhere the pieces to the card base.
4. Stamp your sentimen usingthe Alley Way Stamps.

AND here is a quick video for you to create this card for yourself:

 

 

Next up we have a card from Gail Linder. Teacher cards don’t have to be primary colors and all things chalkboards and school supplies. They can be feminine and pretty, too! Gail Linder shows us her take on this theme next:

All you need is a border punch and Scor-Pal to score lines to make this sheet of Whitewash look like a sheet torn from a notebook!

Teacher-Card-1

Whitewash Collection – Washboard
Core Essentials – St Valentino, Buttercup, French Roast
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Darice Washi Tape
Scor-Pal
Big Shot
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Dymo Label Maker
Fiskars border punch

Did you know that you can cut a thin strip of Core cardstock and thread it through your old style labelmaker to emboss words and phrases? So easy – no more looking for the perfect sticker or stamped sentiment! Just give the the strip a sand to reveal the core and make the letters stand out!

A couple of punched flowers and die cut letters complete the card!
