It Takes a Big Heart

One of my friends was recently appointed as principal at an elementary school in the district where we work.  It's her first principal position, so it's a lot to celebrate.  I put together this encouraging teacher themed card to send to her based on this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.

It Takes a Big Heart card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
My focal image is one of the apples from RC's All Apples set.  I stamped the apple, leaves, and stem in pigment inks, then used the matching dies to cut out the stamped images. After assembling the apple, I used foam tape to adhere it to a green gingham patterned paper panel with a coordinating green cardstock strip.  The gingham panel was adhered to a kraft card base.  I accented the image with a trio of white matte enamel dots running down the left side of the card base.

Materials Used:
All Apples stamp set, All Apples dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Luxe Love Letter, Pear Tart, and Rich Cocoa inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Simply Chartreuse and Kraft cardstock, Simply Chartreuse patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); white matte enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
