When I am creating cards (because I'm still a newbie), I often use templates. I picked up this template from Scrappycath Designs in a challenge at Scrapmatters. Cathy has created a great psd file that's fabulous for helping with placement and sizing of elements. The kit I've used is also a digital item; it's a kit called School Days by WM[squared] Designs. I pefer to use digital items as I know I will never run out of my favorite paper.
I just know my fave teacher will appreciate opening this card on the first day of school.
To all teachers out there- Thanks for everything you teach us.
