As you may know, I'm a first grade teacher. I love my job and my students are always very special to me. This is my third year to teach and every year I send a card to my students in their final report card. I don't tell them about it so I never know what they think of it. I had a student come up to me about three weeks before school was out and tell me that they still had their card from last year and that they kept it in a special place and looked at it often. That sure did make me feel good!!!!
Anyway, I do a different card every year for my students. This year, I used the caterpillar from Create a Critter cricut cartridge. I also used Locker Talk and hid some of the outer shaped from the first grade sign cut and welded it into a rectangle. This was one less layer I had to cut by had b/c the cricut did it for me!!! The letters are not make to cut out completely on this image so I took a silver sharpie marker and traced them in.
I used the Peachy Keen Stamps critter XL face stamps for the caterpillar. I thank ran the caterpillar through my big shot with the Tim Holtz notebook embossing folder to give the caterpillar some "wrinkles." I used SU! red dazzling diamonds glitter glue on the nose and orange stickles on the antennae. I decided to glue on some google eyes to make it more fun for the kids.
If you have any questions, let me know!! Thanks for looking!!!
