Red Delicious!

As soon as I saw the Tart & Tangy stamp set and the Summer Picnic paper (which I absolutely LOVE) I was itching to do something different – then I thought since I ALWAYS need fun cards to give the teachers at my little one’s school, so I came up with this yummy little apple which is so much fun and easy to do!

I used a 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” Real Red card and traced my template (hand-drawn) on the fold.  I used my tab punch to make the stem and the small oval punch to make the leaf.  I learned this little “crimped leaf” trick at my group’s quarterly meeting: you punch out an oval and fold it in half lengthwise.  Then you run it through your crimper and voila!  Cute little leaf!

I also sponged the top and bottom of the edges of the apple and leaf to give it a little darker shading. Oh, and don't forget the bite!! Droolsmiley
