Apple Harvest

Hi friends! I am sharing one of the cards we will be making at Card Class today plus a few pictures from our Colorado trip.

I started with a 4″ x 5.25″ panel of Granny Apple Green. I stamped my sentiment from the stamp set along the bottom. Next I added a triangle of the host DSP called Celebrate Everything. TIP: Cut a piece of 4″ x 5.25 of DSP & cut it on the diagonal. I stamped & die-cut my apple tree branch image & colored using Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green & Crumb Cake Marvelous Markers. Yes, I used Poppy Parade and not Real Red & here’s why: Poppy Parade is a little more bright (or a little less intense) than Real red & I wanted the stamp’s shading to show.

Using dimensionals, I mounted my colored Tree Branch image on a 3″ x 4″ piece of Garden Green Cardstock. I placed it on top of the DSP & Granny Apple Green panel lining up the opposite corners along the diagonal of the DSP.

Finishing touches of a little Linen Thread bow and Red Rhinestones. The card shouts fall, don’t you think?

One of the things that I really enjoyed was a stop to a fruit farm, called Apple Blossom Farms. We got to sample their jar products including jellies, fruited hot sauce and peach salsa which I love with grilled chicken (yum!).

Do you see the little kitty on the dirt road?
That’s me picking (& eating) raspberries

Here’s one last look at the Apple Harvest card. Thanks for indulging me with the trip pictures.

Have a great day & weekend!
