Happy Wednesday!!! This card is perfect for teachers, get well, and so much more. After all, you could send it to anyone as the apple of my eye!!!
This super cute card had fun fold to it as well. The green center piece with the apple opens up and then a little red flap opens down! There are little greetings with each flap too! Thank you to Deb Snyder for the inspiration for this fabulous card!
I started with a piece of Real Red measuring 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and I scored it at 5-1/2″. This creates the little flap on the bottom that folds up. Next, I took a piece of Mint Macaron measuring 9″ x 3-1/4″ and folded it in half at 4-1/2″. The front flap of this piece was then embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. Then I added this to the inside of the red card base. I find that Tear & Tape is best because it has a nice strong hold for a flap that is going to be pulled on a lot.
Next, I create the fun half apple and greeting using the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch! For the greeting, I used the Timeless Label Punch! The apple was colored with Real Red Stampin’ Blends and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. Be sure that this piece is positioned underneath the Mint Macaron flap.
For the front of the card, I created the apple by adding some of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a strip of Real Red cardstock. Then I stamped the apple over the top of this and punched it out. That is how you get the perfect half and half apple. The stem was done in Soft Suede and the leaf in Mint Macaron. Then to seal the overlap of paper on the apple, I added a mini strip of Mint Macaron Ribbon. The mini bow was then created with the Fork Bow Technique! This was all added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! So fun and fabulous!!!
