“Hi” Apple Cards

I made these “hi” cards for Andrea’s teachers this year, as a way to introduce ourselves as well as give them our contact information.

I used scraps for all the pieces (a white 4.25 x 5.5″ white card is hidden behind the “chalkboard”). The “hi” was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in white. Finished “chalkboard” measures 4.5 x 6.5″.

Supplies used:

Brown, White, and Black Cardstock


Versamark ink

Doddlebug letter stamps

White embossing powder

Corner-rounding punch

Feel free to use this template for personal or instructional use only. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
