I covered the card base with paper from Simple Stories Snap collection and then added a strip of the books which is from Echo Park Teachers pet collection. I die cut a panel from Blackboard paper from My Minds Eye All things chalk 6x6 paper pad using a My Favourite things wonky stitched die. I used versamark to stamp the greeting and then heat embossed it with white powder from Papermania.
I used a little strip of Doodlebug washi tape and finally added the paper clip around which I tied a little ribbon. I cut around the image and used 3d foam to attach it to the card after I added a little glaze to her glasses and the cup.
