Hello to you today! I've probably mentioned that I'm a retired teacher. During my years, I saw more apple images than I really want to remember. I've given away lots of apple stuff. Still, for some reason, I was drawn to the Picked for You set in the annual catalog. I already posted a card using this set here. This is another variation.
The crispness of the white background makes me think of the crispness of the apple.
The card base is Granny Apple Green cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The Garden Green layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. The Whisper White layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. Run this through the Big Shot with the Dot to Dot Embossing Folder.
The 3 x 3 Granny Apple Green square is cut from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Adhere to the right of the card. The tree branch is cut from Soft Suede using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. The leaves are Garden Green and are punched using the Lemon Builder Punch. I used 5 leaves on the front and 2 inside the card. I added the leaves with glue dots and dimensionals.
Set the apple stamps on the Stamparatus. This is a four stamp process. The card linked above also have a video that shows setting up the Stamparatus for the apple. You can see the video here. I used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Suede. This time I did use Watercolor Paper. Smooth the colors with an Aqua Painter when done and allow to dry before you cut it out. Add the apple with dimensionals.
The saying is from the same stamp set. Stamp in Real Red and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Add a frame of Real Red using the Layering Ovals Framelits.
Here is the inside of the card. Use the hinge technique and the Stamparatus to stamp the saying down the left of the paper. Add the leaves.
I hope that you will try this card. I think it's very pretty. If you looked at the video and liked it, please subscribe to my Youtube channel. Feel free to share it with your friends.
