Since teacher appreciation week as well as the end of the year is coming up, I thought it would be good to pull double-duty and make a card for the occasion. I also needed to make a thank you card for our upcoming MOPS speaker, so I decided to make a general thank you card as well.
Here is my simple 1-layer card:
I used some melon berry ink on a Q-Tip to color the pencil eraser and some summer sunrise ink to color the pencil shaft. I made the pencil lead darker with a fine-tipped black marker. I added the star after moving on the the "stepped-up" card, and am happy with the addition.
I made my "stepped-up" card with a few layers, a touch of heat embossing, and utilized the rule of three's and triangulation theory that Betsy spoke of.
I tried to triangulate my arrangement of stars as well as the use of the red (berry sorbet) ink.
