How to make a DIY teacher’s day card: that’s the focus of today’s video PLUS I’ve got a bonus project for you! My second card uses the same layout and stamp set but features a fall theme. We need those Fall cards too right?!

Card sketches provide details for a layout which simplifies the design process. And this series is awesome because I’ve got card sketches with measurements! Simply choose your stamp set and your colors! I’ve also included pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies below so be sure to scroll down to see them.

DIY Teacher’s Day Card – Video

Teacher’s are super special people and they need encouragement all year round! This is a fun teacher’s day card for any time of year. But a bonus is that this stamp set is also perfect for Fall cards. Change the greeting on the apple, change the background to a designer paper or embossed image and VOILA you see how versatile this stamp set is. It makes great cards for teachers but use it for fall cards or Halloween cards too!

DIY Teacher’s Day Card – Details

What better way to decorate a card than with notebook paper! I purchased a spiral bound notebook so I could rip a page out to use as a layer on my card. I love the texture the torn holes provide.


This card was included in the Simon Says: Stamp It Challenge

The Twinkle Builder Punch provides a moon and multiple size stars. Those stars sure come in handy when creating cards for all types of occasions.

Sample #2

Change the layer from notebook paper to the beautiful new Come to Gather Designer Paper to create this easy fall card. Rather than adding my greeting alongside the pumpkins, I opted to add a strip of 1/2″ wide Crumb Cake cardstock along the edge of the designer paper.

I love the versatility of the Harvest Hellos Bundle and you will to! Don’t overlook it on page 49 of the Holiday Catalog.
