Greeting cards are one of the most popular uses for a Cricut or other cutting machine. With this template, you can make a Teacher Appreciation card or money holder while learning two crafting techniques: color blocking and layering! 

Color blocking is a technique that puts units of one color next to a section of contrasting colors. Colorblocking is fun and eye-catching, as the colors create inviting and exciting combinations. Another name for a layered card is a 3D card - you stack your elements on top of one another using puffy adhesive. 

The Teacher Appreciation Layered card is a bright and colorful thank-you to give your educator during or after the school year. I love to make them for Teacher Appreciation Week every May! 

Best of all, this handmade card will teach you some Cricut basics and how to use Cricut Design Space. These Cricut projects are a perfect way for a beginner to get to know their Cricut machine!

A Perfect Card for a Perfect Teacher 

Store-bought greeting cards can be expensive and generic. I love making cards for the loved ones in my life because I customize them to each person and occasion. Layered cards are easily altered to create a unique display on the inside and front of the card. You can use words like the examples in my blog post, or you can decorate the front using embellishments or a cover photo. 

The cards are inexpensive to create, too! Craft supplies like glue, foam tape, and medium-weight cardstock are all you need to make a memorable keepsake card for the world's best teacher, a Mother’s Day superhero, or your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day

These color block cards are slimline, making them the perfect card for money or gift card holders. The teacher appreciation color block card template allows for adding an inner sleeve to turn these beautiful cards into presents!
