teacher's card

It's that time of year.. The Teacher Card.

Of course I've gone for my favourite technique. You'd have thought that I would have been bored of colouring on kraft card with pencils by now, but absolutely not. The effect still seems really magical to me. The way the kraft takes colour is just amazing. On this one I have tried to keep a sepia effect throughout by only using neutral colours, except for the red highlight of the apples. I've also highlighted the apples with sepia accents, just to give a bit of lift to the card.

The stamp is from Sugar Nellie, and was a Craft Stamper Subscription gift ages ago.

I'm entering this for The Kraft Journal's favourite things challenge, as this really is made up of my favourite things in crafting at the moment, pencils on kraft card and one layer cards.


  1. Lovely card. Wish I was the teacher...

  2. What a gorgeous card Joanne, I'm sure the teacher will be delighted with it.

  3. Good grief this is gorgeous! I'd say you definitely have the skills for coloring on kraft. Your image is just beautiful and the overall card is very classy. Thanks so much for sharing this with us this week at The Kraft Journal!

  4. Sooo lovely! Almost (and I mean almost) makes me wish I was a teacher.

  5. I don't blame you for loving this, Joanne! This is just gorgeous! Such a simple design, yet so elegant and eye catching. The stamping and coloring on kraft is just amazing.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us again at The Kraft Journal.
