Teachers Count for Verve Diva Dare
Thought I would play along with this month's Verve Diva Dare - Let's Polka today.
I got the Teachers Count set a while back and hadn't gotten to ink it up until now. The papers are from Simple Stories Snap Life 6x6 pad. I thought of these papers right away because of the polka dots, then I chose one of the ruled papers to fit the school theme. I trimmed around the tap and then layered it over another piece of the ruled paper.
I struggled a little in terms of stamping the sentiment. Couldn't decide if I should stamp it on an angle to line up with the lines of the paper, but decided to keep it square to the card. The apples are also from the set. I have the matching dies, but I can't find them (which is no real surprise in my mess of a craft room), so I just fussy cut them.
Pretty quick and easy, and I'll tuck this one away to go with one of our end of school year teacher gifts.
Thanks for coming by, hope you are having a great week!
