An apple a day.....

Got a few projects done and so today will be a multitude of "crafty" posts. Let's start with a shaped card that I made for this week's Cuttlebug blog challenge....

An Apple a day card

Be Inspired #45 was to make a shaped card. I loved all the sample projects that the Cuttlebug DT made. So inspired that I went right to work and made my own.

I didn't have a shaped card base so I went to my Cricut, cut out a large apple and used that as a template to make the card. I used my cuttlebug embossing folders to add dimension to the leaf and trunk of the fruit.

I also added stitching around the card for that homemade feel.

I finished the inside of the card with a little sentiment that, I thought, went well with the words in the front of the card.

Thank you for looking.

Till next time,
