Today’s project was an idea that took a turn. I saw a card which reminded me of an old technique and then turned into this quarter cut, fun, and simple technique starring the Apple Harvest stamp set.
The original idea of this card was to stamp layers that then come together for a 3D look. I did not like how that turned out, but them thought of this much easier version. The White layer began as a 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 piece. After stamping I cut it into four equal squares. The Granny Apple layer began as a 3 3/4 X 3 3/4 layer with the same cutting. And to make layering easier I used a Crumb Cake layer of 4 X 4 to adhere the squares to.
The card base is a Fun Fold as well as a cute technique. It is Sweet Sorbet that is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4. The stamped layers are adhered to the short fold only. So be careful when you add that. Here is an open view.
The Apple Harvest stamp set is a set that can be used in a variety of ways. I used most of the stamps in creating this card. The images are all colored using Stampin’ Blends and all are listed at the bottom of the post in the Supply List. I do have to say that I love the little cross hatch background stamp. Those type images add a great bit to a card. And to create my “stopper” point, I stamped an additional little bloom and fussy cut it. By popping it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional it is both cute and functional.
Colors and Extras
The card base is Sweet Sorbet as are the apples. The leaves are Granny Apple Green and the layer behind the squares is as well. The tree branch and the cross hatch stamp are Crumb Cake. The sentiment is from the set and is stamped and then punched using my Go To punch the Double Oval. For the finishing touches I added a scattering of the 2022-2024 In Color Pearls and the Black and White Gingham ribbon.
