An Apple A Day

I made this card for my husband's grandpa who had back surgery a few weeks ago. He has recently moved to his new living place and the family will be going to visit him regularly to keep his spirits up.

I'm really happy with how the text came out in the background. I printed it on some paper, including the stitching, and then cut it out. On the apple I used flocking for the leaves and cheeks.

This card came together very quickly thanks to two challenges!
The Challenge #1: Use the theme "An Apple a Day", follow the sketch, use red green and yellow, add something black, include an apple and use the Cricut.
The Challenger #1: Jitterbuggin'

The Challenge #2: Follow the sketch!
The Challenger #2: Crazy 4 Challenges

Both challenges have sketches to follow and while I didn't strictly follow the first one, I grabbed some specific elements from it. I layered the circle, brought in the stitching and bannered the text along the top of the card.

Supplies Used:
  • Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio
  • Apple: Create a Critter
  • Flocking: Martha Stewart
  • Plain Paper: Scraps
  • Felt Ribbon: Recollections
