A Wonderful Teacher







Here is the card I made using the Beary Bright Sizzlet Die. I used it to cut out all the apples on the tree. This is for Ryan to give to his new preschool teacher - got to get a few brownie points in.

The sentiment is from a new set that is in the Holiday Mini called Seasons of Hugs. It it part of the Build-a-Bear line and it has a lot of cute images in it. The whole sentiment says "To a Beary Wonderful Teacher", but since I didn't use the bears on this card, I just used my marker to get the part I wanted.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture or not, but the apple down in the corner was cut out of Fun Foam. The sizzlet dies can easily cut the Fun Foam since it has some give to it, but I would not recommend it for other materials since it is only supposed to be used with paper and cardstock.

I finished the card with a little stitching using my Janome Sew Mini - had to knock some cobwebs off of it first, LOL! My whole stamp room has been sadly neglected this summer until last week. Anyway I hope you like the card.

Thanks for looking,
Kim

This is one of my favorite stamps to use with the BABW dies!! I love your idea to use the apples from Beary Bright Sizzlit. I haven't gotten the new BABW dies yet, but hope to soon. I LOVE BABW :D
