Teacher Appreciation Card #3

Hey Everyone!

Well, I surprised myself with making this window frame card for my DD's Art Teacher. He is a really creative guy and my daughter loves his class.

Where do I begin trying to explain this card...
Details: It is a 4 x 6 card using a Gypsy Wandering frame. I then duplicated the frame, hid the details, flipped, grouped and welded. I liked this frame because it kinda looked like a piece of notebook paper.

Layer 1 on the Gypsy:

I then used several images from Locker talk: The artist brush, paints and the art picture (flower) I started with the palette and angled it at the top and enlarged the size so it touched at least 3 sides when welded. Then, did the same with the brush, paint and finally the flower. The last thing I did was weld the letter "A" and letter "T" to the "R" (The R was part of the flower and stem)

Then for the other layers on the Gypsy, I copied and pasted all the other details above (so they would be the exact size I needed) and cut in the colors I wanted to glue down on top of the card.

Inside the card:

My dd found a poem that we printed off on the computer. Then, we took some art terms and used Word to repeat them on the page and print off. I took a sponge and different colors of Tim Holtz Distress ink pads to swirl color over the art words. Then just attached everything together.

  1. Donya, your card is wonderful! creative! I have a hard time getting my Gypsy to weld pieces inside of other did a great job. I'm sure the art teacher will appreciate this little work of art! :-) TFS!
