An Apple for the Teacher

Before we know it, school will be out for the summer (yay!), so now is the perfect time to start creating a card or two for that special teacher that put up with taught your child all year...don't you think? :-) To create today's card, I paired the new Apple Orchard Extra Large Embossing Plate with the darling little Apple Orchard 2 x 3 inch die.

Beth Moore
Directions to create this card:
  • Create 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch cardbase from white cardstock
  • Cut patterned paper to fit front of cardbase and adhere.
  • Cut Core'dinations Whitewash Collection (Grandma's Rocker) to 4 x 5 1/2 inches and emboss with Apple Orchard XL Embossing Plate.
  • Lightly sand top of embossed cardstock with Sand It Gadget.
  • Adhere embossed cardstock to card front.
  • Cut piece of patterned paper 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and die cut with Scalloped Diamond border.
  • Adhere to cardfront.
  • Wrap card with ribbon and tie into bow.
  • With 2 x 3 inch Apple Orchard die, die cut 2 apples from red cardstock (discard worm or save for another project). 
  • Color stems of apples with dark brown Copic Maker of choice.
  • Cut small piece of scrap white cardstock and adhere behind apple highlight. Adhere this apple on top of second apple with Pop Dots to create a dimensional shape.
  • Adhere apple to card front as shown.
  • Die cut scrap piece of Core'dinations (Grandma's Rocker) with Little Stackers Nesting Dies Scalloped Oval.
  • Die cut scrap piece of white cardstock with coordinating Silver Stackers Nesting Dies Oval and stamp with sentiment.
  • Adhere sentiment to Scalloped Oval die cut off center slightly to create a "shadow-look" and adhere to card front.
I do hope you enjoy your weekend and be sure to stop back in tomorrow and every day for more inspiration from the Cheery Lynn Designs Design Team.
