While this time of year is always busy, I love pausing to add some hand crafted goodness to my end of year teacher gifts. I’ll have several ideas for you over the next week or so – so stay tuned.
I love challenging myself to come up with new ideas with my ScanNCut (I am a paid consultant for Brother, but all ideas and opinions are my own) and I love when I’m asked to try something I don’t usually do. On this particular occasion, it was a pop-up card, and I have one version to share with you here today.
Here is a link to my YouTube tutorial.
Utilizing a combination of stickers and die cut shapes I just love how this turned out.
I am also really loving how I was able to use patterned paper inside the card, but use the ScanNCut to make just the right sized space to write a note to this teacher heading into retirement.
Putting more energy into the middle and making the front a closure was a lot of fun, and I’m loving the idea of a surprise inside. Be sure to keep an eye on scanncut.com – since I’ll have a tutorial going up for a different card soon, and they’ve got tons of videos and PDF tutorials all the time. In fact I’ve got a new spring bouquet one up now here.
