How are all my crafty friends today??
I am getting ready to go in vacation next week
so I have been super busy at work!!
We are going to Chicago!!
My hubby works for Amtrak, and he got
picked to be in a safety video.
So the company is flying him to
Chicago for the video shoot and we decided
to make a vacation out of it!!
We have been there once before, so are really
looking forward to visiting again.
And one stop I am going to be sure to
make is to the Archiver's Store!!
We do not have Archiver's in California.
Anyway, enough chit chat, on to my project.
Today is Theme Day Thursday, and the theme today
was to use an apple or any fruit cut.
I decided to combine the theme with a swap
I am participating in. For the swap, I was to make a
fall card with an embellishment.
Here is my card.
All my cuts are from an oldie but a goodie "Doodlecharms"
The basket was cut at 2.80" out of kraft cardstock.
I embossed it with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder.
I then inked it with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
The bands on the basket were cut in grey and I
added brads as the rivits.
My apples were cut at 1.5". I cut the base layer in green
and instead of cutting the piece for the stem,
I just used a marker to color the stem brown.
Now, my favorite kind of apple is a Gala Apple.
So I decided to make my apples look like Galas.
I cute the top layer out of yellow, and then used
Fired Brick Distress Ink and pounched the color
on. I also embossed them using the Swiss Dots Folder.
I just love the way they turned out!!
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper
"Fruit and Veggie Puns".
The pattern paper is from an old
CTMH paper pack called "Twitterpated".
