Apple of My Eye again

WOW!!!  Today in Ohio is GORGEOUS!  High 60s and sunny!  It even smells like spring!  I brought my laptop out to the kitchen table so I could open up the sliding door and enjoy the warm weather and gentle breeze!  I had planned to work on some cards, today…but think I’ll play hooky and go outside instead!


But first, here’s a card I did using Apple of My Eye again…this time a slice of orange and sunshine…just like today!

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Cucumber Crush, folded in half.
  • The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White was stamped in Hello Honey with the sun from Kinda Ecletic (hmmm, just had a thought, I should have used the Sunburst Thinlet Die…oh well!).
  • On top of the Whisper White is a 2 x 5 piece of Cherry on Top DSP, stamped at the bottom with the greeting from Apple of My Eye in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Across the front is some White Glitter Tape (FREE with $50 SAB order…along with gold and silver!).  It really gives a nice sparkle that I hope you can see in the next picture.
  • The Orange slice from Apple of My Eye was stamped with Tangelo Twist on Whisper White (going to miss that color a LOT when it retires in a couple months!), then punched with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch.  It is placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The leaves were stamped with Garden Green Ink and hand-cut, then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • My favorite clear Wink of Stella adds some sparkle to the orange slice and the top of the leaves!
