At The Movies Teacher's Gift

Hello AI Fans!
It's Karen here, with my inaugural post on the AI blog!  I had a lot of fun making my project this week...  with the end of the school year upon us, I decided to make a thank you gift set that would be great to give to a teacher.  I used the fabulous At The Movies Set -(sku#4237) from the Girlfriends Collection to make the card, then a matching gift card holder for a movie theatre gift card, and finally a cute little popcorn holder that I'll wrap up in cellophane to complete the gift.
Here's a close up of the popcorn munchin' gals:
I started by cutting out all my diecut pieces:
After assembling the popcorn & gift card holders, I used my sewing machine to zigzag my background pieces onto the card base, added my film strip and glued down my main image.  The real fun was setting up my little photo shoot and trying not to get greasy popcorn on anything!  I'll leave you with the Copic colours that I used:
Have a wonderful Tuesday :o)
