I FINALLY got my cards made from the November Bloom Box this past Saturday. Angie and I worked on our boxes while our hubbies worked. This fun Ala Mode stamp set is pretty cool and great for an Autumn or Thanksgiving card!
I enjoyed this first card as we made a bit of a basket weave piece for the 2 apple pies and the apple. How fun! I changed my card from the directions by sponging the Butter Cream piece with the sentiment with Hazelnut Blend ink. I also colored my apple red instead of green.
With a few swipes of Journey Glaze we added some Sparkle Cuts, kinda looks like sugar!
This card was so easy but I had an issue with my Glaze on the apples. I was at the bottom of the bottle so added barely any water but that was too much!
We paper pieced the apples. The tiny stem was a bugger to cut out but I like the overall look.
