Whimsie Doodles

As I said earlier, I am hooked on easel cards.  Over the years, I have been decorating my kitchen in apples so I am always looking at apples.  Even if it is in a card, so I decided to make an apple easel card.

And since I didn't want just a plain apple, I used one of my textured folders and put a swirl on the apple.  Then I printed and cut out 'Apple Lizzie' by Whimsie Doodles.  The message area has two apple brads, one to keep the card in place and the other is just for looks.

The print & cut feature on my silhouette is becoming my favorite technique.  It is just so use to offset a digital stamp and then cut it.

I am going to use this card in several challenges:

Whimsie Doodles - Back to School
Silhouette Weekly Shape Challenge - Welding
QKR Stampede - Back to School
Repeat Impressions - Food
Craft Spot by Kimberly - Favorite Technique

I hope every one has a great week.  It is hard to believe that it is the middle of the week already.

  3. I love this. The apple shape of your card is fantastic. I also like how you embossed the apple. Is the card base a cut file? Thanks so much for sharing this cute creation with us at QKR Stampede this week.

    1. The card base is a cut file I created from an apple. Thanks so much for the kind words. I have only had my silhouette for about six months but I love it. It makes card making so easy.
