Whimsical Wednesday ~ Back To Basics

Hello and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This week it is back to basics! That means "NO" Cricut! Yep... NO CRICUT! I LOVE this challenge. I have truly only known the Cricut, so these challenges I find so fun! I know some of you can't believe what you are reading! So all you have to do is get your creative juices flowing (which I know you ALL have) use NO Cricut and you must add some "old school" embellishment such as a sticker, rub on or anything but NO Cricut!! Very easy!
So for my card I needed to make three cards for my son's Teachers and Principal!I decided to try my hand at a Z fold card! I made them all the same to make it fair! I used my Sizzix for my felt flower, my PTI die for my flower pot, some chip board letters, twine, ribbon, a brad, an eyelets and some clear plastic.I think this is  pretty "Old School"! I have a space for a note and the  other side for their gift cards.






Materials:
PTI~ paper, felt ribbon,rectanglar dies
The Twinery~ Twine
Chip Letters~ Thickers
Misc. brad and eyelets

  6. Hi Kim,

    I really love the card you made for the teachers and principal. I know they will it too. As a teacher, I will say for someone to take the time to make a card for me would be very touching.
    Your card is so pretty. I just love the way the flower stem is growing. The felt flowers are a great touch. Kim, this is a wonderful card.
