End of Year Cards for Teachers

I know a lot of you are already done with school, but we're not out until tomorrow!  It's been especially wild and crazy around here with end of school events since Ellie graduates from elementary school this year.  Her 'promotion ceremony' was yesterday evening.

Anyway, I needed some cards to go with gifts for our teachers.  I love the images from Waffle Flower's Pencil In set, but the sentiments in the set are on the smallish side, and just didn't convey how grateful we are for our teachers this year.  We really lucked out, they were the perfect teachers for our girls!

I pulled out this older set from Verve (which sadly is closing it's doors at the end of this month - I think pretty much all their inventory is gone, but it's worth a look-see as everything had been discounted 55% last I looked).  I just love the sentiments in this set and they paired perfectly with the Waffle Flower images.

This first card was super simple.  Just some simple Copic coloring on the little girl and boy, stamped sentiment, patterned paper mat, and done.

I wet a little more complicated for the second card.  I stamped the images from the Pencil In set in the center of my panel and colored them with Copics.

The sentiment from the Verve set was added above, and then I used a number stamp from the Verve set and Versamark ink to create some tone on tone patterned paper for the bottom panel.  

A thin strip of black cardstock finished things off.

Now I just need to write in these cards and wrap up the teacher gifts and tomorrow we'll officially be on summer break!  (And by we, I mean the kids and Andrew (who is a teacher) because, sadly, I still have to work.)
