Fall Apple Trio

>> Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Hi Everyone,
One of my favorite things about fall is definately the apples. I love to get them from the orchard and make a pie or two. One year my friend taught me how to can, and we put up more than a dozen jars of homemade applesauce. It was that time spent in the kitchen at her home that inspired my card today.
I colored up my stamped Apple Trio image from DRS Designs with my Copic markers and cut it out with my Spellbinders dies. I decided to use that same image for my background as well, so out came some of my Martha Stewart white embossing powder. I think using that same silhouette image along the bottom of the card looks really cool.
 
 
The new Checkered Background stamp looks just like a tablecloth, so I thought it added to the whole kitchen-y vibe of the card. A punched border, some over sized brads and the Happy Fall Y'all finished it off.

Have a great day!

Your colored apples are really lovely with the shading. This card has such a wonderful down home country feel! I miss the apple orchards in Ohio!
