My APPLE card started out with a white card base...but when I stamped the sentiment it was crocked. I cut the card down to layer on the kraft card base, flipped it over and stamped the sentiment straight.
I started with the bigger red apple then I remembered I had a little apple punch. How fun I punched and glued the little green apples to a ring...then I colored in the details and highlights. I played around with the design until I was satisfied. I pondered on the sentiment until I came across this one from Gina K at Stamp TV...It was perfect for the design. The burlap square was an after thought and it complimented the kraft card stock. I coated the apples with glossy accents for the added dimension and shine.
Clean and Simple cards are especially challenging for me, I always want to add more embellishments or I mess up with smears or glue and have to cover it up. I'm happy to try and hopefully develop my skills with practice. Be sure to visit and view the wonderful cards created by the design team at CAS-ology.
Thanks for visiting...
Be well and craft on!~ Carole
