Teacher Appreciation and Card Candy Give-away #3


Hi everyone.  It's getting close to the end of the school year, so I thought I'd make a teacher appreciation card.  Apples are always associated with teachers ... and doctors ... and loved ones (you are the apple of my eye) - love that saying!  Lots of cards that you could make with apples ... and these gingham ones are so sweet! Hope you like.



Stamps:  Gingham Wheel (SU!); Autumn Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White, Real Red polka-dot DP, Gumball Green, Early Espresso (SU!)
Ink:  Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Apple die (C.C. Designs), Gumball Green stitched ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue, adhesives and dimensionals

I stamped with my gingham wheel in the three different colors onto white cardstock. I die-cut the apples (one of each color) and then six more out of white cardstock.  I die-cut the stem from Early Espresso and the leaf from Gumball Green.  I glued the stem and leaf together; then layered them between a gingham apple layer and a white apple layer.  I added one more white apple layer of cardstock to the bottom, making each apple three layers so it is thick and strong.



Here's a close-up:

The card above uses my latest card candy.  Check them out ...








There are three different sizes of clouds ... and five different sets of three (felt, polka-dot embossed, blue-edged, plain, faux stitched).  I also have included a backing paper of sponged sky that can be used in the background of a card.

WOW, Loll, the gingham apples and the shiny apples are just precious. I'm a retired teacher and still love apples! Gingham reminds me of my mom who made aprons for her sisters and often used red gingham.
