Step by Step Instructions:


1. Using the Smart Trimmer Guillotine blade, cut a White piece of American Crafts Cardstock to 10"x7".
Score a line with blade #2811 down the center, making the card base 5"x7".
2. Freehand cut the apple shape, using the Freestyle Mouse #6040 and Straight blade #2801 on the Smart
Trimmer Cutting Mat. If you prefer, you can ink the edges of the apple with Colorbox Inks 'Chestnut Roan'.
3. I used some scraps of Bazzill Brown (textured cardstock) to cut the stem, & Green (dotted swiss) to cut
the leaf shape. Both can be cut using the Freestyle Mouse #6040 on the Smart Trimmer Cutting Mat. Ink the
edges of the leaf, with Colorbox Inks 'Olive pastel'. Adhere the stem and leaf
shapes, to the apple, using Glue Arts Glue Rings.
4. Cut a piece of K&Co's 'Wild Saffron- Notebook' paper, to 4 3/4" x 6
3/4", adhere to White Card Base, using the Glue Glider Pro with PermaTac
Cartridge. Optional: distress the edge of the 'notebook' paper, with a nail
file, or sanding block.
5. Wrap a 18" piece of the 'Journey' Bobbin Ribbon around the left
edge of the card, and tie in a knot. Adhere the apple to the center of the
card using Glue Arts Glue Rings.
6. Cut a 2" letter 'A', and a 1" '#' sign, from a piece of Yellow Bazzill Bling Cardstock, using the George Cricut
cartridge. Trim the '#' sign to be a '+' sign, and adhere the 'A+' to the center of the apple, using Glue Arts Glue
Rings.
7. Using the Coredinations 'Black Magic' cardstock, and the George Cricut cartridge, cut the 'Thanks' word
in a 1" size. Adhere to the top of the card, using Glue Arts Glue Rings.
8. With the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge, cut 'to you' & 'I made it through!', in a 1" size. This is also from the
Coredinations 'Black Magic' cardstock. Adhere 'to you' to the bottom edge of the front of the card, and the 'I
made it through!' to the inside of the card, using the Glue Arts Glue Rings.

On the Road Card


Tools:
Purple Cows 2 in 1 Combo Trimmer #1040
Purple Cows Click Blade Score #2811
Supplies:
American Crafts Cardstock, white
Inaginisce Let’s Roll Collection
Clearsnap Colorbox Inks, Lipstick Red,
American Crafts Tinsel Letters (Cherry Red)
GlueArts Glue Rings, Glue Glider Pro
American Crafts Thicker Letters

Step by Step Instructions:

1. With a White piece of American Crafts textured cardstock, use the 2-in-1 Combo Trimmer #1040 and cut a 7
1/2" x 8" piece. Use the Score blade #2811 (on the rotary side) and score a line 3 3/4" in on the 7 1/2" side (to make a
card base that will be 3 3/4" x 8" when folded).
2. Trim a piece of the bright & colorful Imaginisce 'Let's Roll- Straight Ahead' patterned paper to 3 5/8" x 7 3/4",
using the guillotine side of the 2-in-1 Combo Trimmer. Optional: Ink edges of this piece with Colorbox Ink Queue
'Lipstick Red'. 3. Take out the die-cut 'Road' frame, from the coordinating chipboard die-cut sheet,
and you'll need the blue 'vroom!' from the Rub-On sheet. Before adhering these, make
sure they will fit in the top left edge of your card front (straight ahead piece). When you've
fit them to your liking, Rub on the 'vroom!', and then place the die-cut frame over it,
securing with 2 green snaps (or brads, whatever you have on hand!) Note: the die-cut
chipboard stickers are self-adhesive, so you can leave it as is, if you like, they stick great!
4. Take some American Crafts 'Tinsel' letters in Cherry Red, and spell 'on the road'
along the front middle of the card. Wrap a double length of Green Offray
ribbon along the bottom edge, securing with a bow along the right
bottom corner of the card front. You can now adhere your embellished
'straight ahead' piece to the white card base, using your Glue Glider Pro
with PermaTac cartridge.
5. Here's your chance to get even more creative! Use the Rub-
On's/Die-cut chipboard stickers to create the rest of your message. I
chose to use the 'cruisin' and some more American Crafts Thicker Letters
to spell 'to success' in black and red (black - Gift Box; red - Tinsel).
6. Cut a strip of the arrows (color of your choice, here I used green),
from the 'Let's Roll- Let's Go' patterned paper. Ink the edges, if you
choose. I used Colorbox Queue Ink - Dark Brown. And secured a strip under the 'success' letters. I also used the left
overs to embellish the upper right-hand corner of the top inside edge, along with the 'beep beep' rub on in red.
You'll have a hard time choosing from all the brightly colored Rub-On's and Stickers to embellish your card to your
liking!)
7. Top it all off with a special dose of your own handwriting! I finished the sentiment here, by adding 'Thanks
for all your help!'

Step by Step Instructions:


1. Using your trusty Purple Cows 2-in-1 Combo Trimmer #1040, trim a piece of white American Crafts
textured cardstock to 7" x 10". Score the middle of the 10" side using the Score blade #2811, on the rotary
side of the trimmer.
2. Trim a piece of Cosmo Cricket's 'Get Happy: Snappy' to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" (I used the yellow flip side of
this paper). If you choose, distress the edge with a nail file, sanding block, or piece of sand paper. Make a
small cut in the top edge, 2" in from the left edge, and fold these 'corners' down and secure with Bazzill
Basics Black Brads. Place a Bazzill Basics Black Brad in each corner, and secure to the white card base, using
the Glue Glider Pro with PermaTac cartridge.
3. Wrap a length of 'Measuring Tape' Bobbin Ribbon around left edge of card and secure with a knot,
near the bottom of the card.
4. Add your sentiment letters 'RULE' at the bottom of the page, using the American Crafts Thickers
'Rootbeer Float' in Black.
5. Place the negative to a chipboard 'U' letter above the 'rule' and your done! {Chipboard is by Creating
Keepsakes}. The inside was left blank, so you can write your own message of the thanks to the teacher who
'Rules'!
