Now for today’s Freebie: To help Gaby celebrate National Teacher’s Day-Week. I came up with this super cute Digital Stamp of a little “bookworm in an apple. The digital stamp will be black and white for you to color in and will be with the A+ Teacher Sentiment and with no sentiment.

Card Recipe: 

Finished card size: 5.5 x 5.5” – Bazzill Red(Kisses) Cardstock 
Patterned Paper from the DCWV Grade School Stack 
EK Success border punch, corner and circle punches 
Cricut Expression 
Lacey Labels 
Misc. Yellow Ribbon 

After coloring in the digi stamp I used a 3” circle punch to cut it out and then used my Cricut to cut out the red and yellow scalloped circles. Those came from the Lacey Labels Cartridge.

Here is a close up shot of the DCWV paper. I was trying to show how pretty it is. Some of the apples are pre-glittered for you and it is a nice heavier paper. Cardstock weight!!!
