I designed a card, envelope and gift bag for the occasion using school-themed scrapbook papers, Cricut cuts and my favorite teacher-themed stamps. I used different papers on the outside and inside of the card. Stamping my children's names is a time saver.
Using cuts in varying sizes creates a coordinated look. Envelopes and gift bags are often forgotten so I decided to coordinate everything using stamps and dimensional stickers.

I thought a softer font would be better for my daughter's cards. I decided not to link the letters (even though they are cursive) for a unique look.
Here I am in my craft room making 15 cards and gift sets. Teachers will receive either Tastefully Simple or Fruit flavored loose tea from Teavana.
