MFT April Teaser Day 5

Hi everyone!  Today is Day 5 of MFT's April Teasers. I am excited to share a fun, new a la mode with you, An Apple for Teacher.  I also have peeks of a couple new Die-Namics.


With the new stamp set I made a Tri-Fold card and gift for a favorite teacher. I stamped in image in black ink, colored with Copics, and paper pieced her shirt. Then I cut her out with the new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. 


The shading is with done with Prism Colored Pencils. I added a ribbon to tie the card shut. My papers are from Graphic 45 ABC Primer.


On the first page that shows when the card is open I added a sentiment from the stamp set cut out with one of the smaller dies in the Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics


When the card is completely open I added a pocket for a gift card and other sentiment from the set. The letters ABC are cut with the new By the Letter Uppercase Die-namics. You could also add a note from the student or a photograph.

Such beautiful coloring with your Copics! I LOVE your patterned paper choices (especially her pretty blouse), and the fact that the inside is just as gorgeous as the outside! Lastly, the card holder is such a wonderful surprise... the recipient would be lucky enough to get the card, let alone the bonus of a present! ;)
