That Time of the Year!

First of all...I would like to say how sorry I am for not posting for a week. We start school here in one week and I work for the schools so I have been back at work. I decided to make something nice for the teachers from myself and my fellow office staff.

Everything is Close To My Heart :) I love when I can bust into my stash and not spend a penny! So I pulled out some 12x12" Colonial White Cardstock X5646. I cut it down to 3 qty strips of 4x12" and then cut those down to 4x6" and folded them in half.

I then used B1351 You're Sweet and stamped the center of the card with the apple in Z2127 Holiday Red and either side of it in Z2197 Pear.

The Stem is inked with Z2111 Chocolate.

Then I decided to add the leaf in just the center to pop the red apple a bit more with Z2155 Topiary.

I then took the Stamp Of The Month from the past S1211 Capture the Date and put our first day of school in Z2127 Holiday Red.
I just wanted to keep it a nice clean card since I was doing 24 of them and our staff is both male and female! So with the cuts you can make 6 cards out of 1 piece of 12x12" paper. Great for multiple cards to hand out :) I hope you enjoy this time of year as much as I do!
