Apple of my Eye

Happy Friday! SO glad the weekend is here! Just when I think things can't get any crazier, they somehow do. Ready for a break in the action and maybe *gasp* a day off!

Today I have a quick and easy card I made using the Apple of My Eye stamp set...

I have to say that this set has really grown on me over the life of the Occasions catalogue...just in time for it to retire! It figures!! To create this card I began with a piece of Whisper White card stock on which I stamped the apple image from the Apple of my Eye set in Real Red ink several times along the right side. I added the stem in Crumb Cake, the leaf image in Wild Wasabi and the seeds in Basic Black and then ran the stamped panel through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF. (Still mourning the retirement of this one!). I matted the embossed panel on a piece of Basic Black card stock and then mounted it on a Real Red card base.

I stamped the apple image again on a scrap of Whisper White card stock, stamped the sentiment over top in Basic Black and then fussy cut it out. I added a fussy cut leaf and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. The only embellishment on this simple card is some Basic Black baker's twine.

On the inside I stamped the apple and stem again, this time stamping off before stamping on the Whisper White card stock panel. I added another sentiment from the Apple of my Eye set in Basic Black ink.

This is  super quick and easy card to whip up and send to someone special. Who do you know that could use a little pick-me-up today? Take 10 minutes and send them a smile via snail-mail. I guarantee they will love it!

Have a fabulous weekend!
