Hello! I had three days off this week because of the holiday, so I had a little more 'free' time to play in my craft room than I usually have and I took advantage of that by playing the CASology
Challenge. Their cue word this week is 'Apple'. I had purchased a lot of Flourishes stamp sets over Christmas that I had yet to use, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get this new set inky. I picked one of the littlest images in the set, this cup of cider and sliced apples, because I thought a small image would fit the Clean and Simple Challenge better than the main large apple image. I don't know if the owners of this blog will consider this card Clean and Simple, but I certainly do. It does have three layers, but they are all in the same color which gives it a very clean look.
To make my card, I started with a Kraft base, then adhered DCWV Burlap Paper over the Kraft. Have you tried this new paper yet? It's fabulous! It is very thin, and it is burlap adhered over a thin paper. It's really ease to cut and it provides texture and interest without the bulk of real burlap. My second layer is Kraft paper again, this time cut with a Spellbinder Scalloped Rectangle Nestability. The next layer is designer paper from DCWV...it's another new stack filled with fun prints on Kraft paper. Finally, I cut a circle of Kraft paper and then stamped the image with white ink. I then stamped the image again on white card stock, colored it, cut it out, and adhered it over the white stamped image. The card was finished off with a cute sentiment tag, some brown twine, and a rustic button: Simple, Rustic, Country.
Have a great day! Amy
