Today is the last day of the Back to School Blog Hop!! :(
It's been a pleasure sharing my projects with you! I've truly enjoyed reading each and every comment.
I will draw the blog candy winner on Monday, August 16th, 2010. Please feel free to leave comments today to be eligible to win the prizes. I will email the winner as well as posting the winner on my blog on Monday.
All projects will be available (including Monday's PDF file for the bookmarks) on the link at the top of the page (right under my banner) after the blog hop is over. Again, thanks so much for letting me share with you this week. Thanks, too, to the lovely ladies of the blog-hop. I hope I have inspired you as much as you have inspired me.
Now, on to the project:
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I have been posting a project daily for a week. Please feel free to scroll down my blog and view the other projects.
Todays project is an apple basket card set. All six of the apple
cards are shaped cards with white card bases.
Step one is cutting a bowl for all the fruit to sit in. I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge to cut a bowl using vellum. Using the Fit to Page feature, cut the Pioneer Girl on Accessory 2 (the bowl will cut between 30"-33").
You'll have to glue the vellum bowl down into white card stock. Using a glue runner, glue only the top rim (above the lip cut), around the edges, and the bottom of the bowl. Attach it to the card stock and hand cut the bowl backing.
Step two is cutting the apple from Preserves cartridge. I used apple 4. Cut all layers at 4 3/4".
Again you'll have to make a card base by hand. I applied glue runner to the top, stem and leaf and attached it to white card stock. Then cut out the apple to create to card back.
I cut six apples to get a nice full bowl of apples.
Here is a picture of the apples all piled in the bowl.
See how they peek out of the vellum bowl?
Have you fallen in love with this bowl of apples?
I have a fruit basket for sale on Etsy. Check it out here:
