Fall Apple Tree Card

This week's post is a fall apple tree card. You can't think of fall without thinking of apples! This is a top-folding 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card in Crumb Cake, layered with Real Red and Olive Green, all Stampin' Up colors. The Olive Green layer is embossed using the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder. The swirls represent the fall wind.

I cut the tree in brown from the Create a Critter2 cartridge, p. 57, at 3-3/4 inches. The apples and leaves are punched with the Tree Builder punch by Stampin' Up, stamped with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, hand colored and inked. The bushel basket is also from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. I just cut it down a little bit to be more proportionate to the tree and inked the edges. I popped up the tree and the bushel basket with dimensional dots. The greeting is from the Endless Thanks stamp set from Stampin' Up and is punched out with the small oval punch and then layered onto a scallop punch in red.

The weather has finally turned cooler and I can think more about fall and all the good things that come with it! Have a good week and I'll be back next week to start my Halloween  projects!
