Wow! What a chilly start to the day today. It was only 48 degrees when I got out of bed, but the sun was out too, shinning brightly! I know the official start to Fall is still a couple weeks away, but with temps like this I say, "Happy Fall Y'all!"
While browsing challenge blogs the other day, I was inspired to play along with CASology's "Apple" challenge. It's perfect for this time of year and I knew DRS Designs had a perfect Apple Trio image (350G) to go with it. On a side note, I'm really trying to make cards that are more of the Clean and Simple look, so I took the plunge and went for the challenge.
I colored the apples with Copic Markers and carefully fussy cut them out. I put them aside while I worked on my card front. I started with khaki cardstock and stamped "Happy Fall Y'all!" (635B) near the top. Then, I embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder and matted it with red cardstock. I tied a simple red bow with twine and wrapped it around the top, under the sentiment. Next, I added the apple image near the bottom using foam tape for some dimension. The card front was adhered to a dark brown A2 cardstock base and my card was complete!
I'm ready for apple pie, cider and donuts! Are you?
