School's Out!

Wow, it has been a few weeks. My die-cutting machine went on the permanently injured list and I had to get something new. Got a Cameo this time. This is the 2nd project I have cut with it and I am enjoying it!
Today I have a Design Team project for My Scrap Chick.
The end of the school year is looming on the horizon and I thought it would be good to get started on some cards that the boys could give to their teachers at the end of the year to say Thank You.
 I used two sets of cut files from the My Scrap Chick store to make this card:
Other Supplies Used:
Echo Park paper: Everyday Eclectic
Canvas Corp: Chalkstock
My Craft Spot: Big Sentiments 2
Trendy Twine: Twisted Lime
Graphic 45: Stamp from the ABC Primer collection
Tim Holtz: Distress Crackle Paint/Clear Rock Candy
Papertrey Ink: Fresh Snow ink
Buttons and Gems from My Stash

It is hard to see the Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint on the apple in the photo, but it does add a really nice touch to the card. And I really like the effect of the white ink on the chalkstock. I think that when I make the next one, I will use a colored ink to make it look like colored chalk. Another fun idea would be to use sequins in place of the buttons and gems.
Thanks for stopping by! I am so glad you are here! Check back tomorrow for another DT post.
I will enter this into the following challenges:
