Apple for the Teacher with Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and Embossing Plates

Before we know it, school will be out for the summer (yay!), so now is the perfect time to start creating a card or two for that special teacher that put up with taught your child all year...don't you think? :-) To create today's card, I paired the new Apple Orchard Extra Large Embossing Plate with the darling little Apple Orchard 2 x 3 inch die.

Beth Moore
Directions to create this card:
  • Create 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch cardbase from white cardstock
  • Cut patterned paper to fit front of cardbase and adhere.
  • Cut Core'dinations Whitewash Collection (Grandma's Rocker) to 4 x 5 1/2 inches and emboss with Apple Orchard XL Embossing Plate.
  • Lightly sand top of embossed cardstock with Sand It Gadget.
  • Adhere embossed cardstock to card front.
  • Cut piece of patterned paper 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and die cut with Scalloped Diamond border.
  • Adhere to cardfront.
  • Wrap card with ribbon and tie into bow.
  • With 2 x 3 inch Apple Orchard die, die cut 2 apples from red cardstock (discard worm or save for another project). 
  • Color stems of apples with dark brown Copic Maker of choice.
  • Cut small piece of scrap white cardstock and adhere behind apple highlight. Adhere this apple on top of second apple with Pop Dots to create a dimensional shape.
  • Adhere apple to card front as shown.
  • Die cut scrap piece of Core'dinations (Grandma's Rocker) with Little Stackers Nesting Dies Scalloped Oval.
  • Die cut scrap piece of white cardstock with coordinating Silver Stackers Nesting Dies Oval and stamp with sentiment.
  • Adhere sentiment to Scalloped Oval die cut off center slightly to create a "shadow-look" and adhere to card front.
I do hope you enjoy your weekend and be sure to check out the CLD blog every day for more inspiration from the Cheery Lynn Designs Design Team.
