One Of A Kind Teacher - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Card

Isn't it funny/ironic that earlier this year I decided to change my blog name to 'She's Making Cards' and since then I have hardly posted any?! Well, yesterday I had the chance to get in my craft room for fun and I played along with the new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays' {CFC68 Back To School}!

For the card base I used a couple different fonts and printed the sentiment onto cardstock. After cutting and folding, I placed three simple, white, plain, apples above the words. Into the row of white apples I threw a 'unique' one to help bring across the 'one-of-a-kind' from the sentiment.

Think this will make a good card for my daughter's teacher at Christmas or Teacher Appreciation Week.

Just the details… (1) Embossed the white apples with an alphabet plate, (2) for the 'special apple' I paper-pieced it and popped the main part off the card with foam adhesive.
