For Two Great Teachers

As another school year comes to a close, it's important to let teachers know how special and appreciated they are, especially after all of the hard work they put into teaching our youth. Today I'm showing off the cards I've made to go with the thank you gifts for my son's teacher and teaching assistant.
These pocket cards were started by cutting scalloped squares using large Nestability dies. I adhered the right, left, and bottom edges of two of them together to form the pocket. I decorated the fronts of each one by stamping the Interlocking Star Background (819H) with Versa Mark and the Starry Background (124H) with dark purple ink.  
On one of them, I used the Teacher Tools (792G) image to embellish the front. I colored it with Copic markers. Then, I stamped "Thank You" from the Box of Chocolates Greeting (967F) and cut it out with a fishtail banner to put below the image.  
On the other, I stamped the Brush Thank You (1095H).
The inside message was computer generated and the tops of the message cards were embellished with a paper bow.  A matching, layered flower embellished with a pearl in the center decorated each bow.
Once I had my ideas drawn up on paper and started to create these, everything seemed to fall right into place.  I really had a lot of fun making these and I hope his teachers really enjoy them!
Of course, I hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
