Apple Shaped card

Hi Lori here with a tutorial on how to make an apple shaped card. With back to school around the corner I thought I'd make a few for my kids teachers. I used Elisabeth Bell's An Apple for you stamp from Whiff of Joy.

Supplies: Black card stock, 6 inch square piece of red designer paper. Scrap pieces of green and brown designer papers.  A small bow, twine, charm, ribbon, half pearls, stamps and template.

First off I needed an apple template so I went on the internet and googled "Apple Template" and clicked on images.  There are many to choose from. Save the picture to your computer. I then resized and printed mine to be approximately 5 inches wide. Next cut out all the paper shapes. I then held my template on the red designer paper and cut out as above.

Do the same with the leaf and stem using your green and brown scraps.

Next fold your black card stock in half cut around the shape leaving a 1/8 inch space. Notice the straight 1 inch part on the left. That is along the fold and don't cut all the way through.

It should look like this when open.

Now start to embellish. Add the stem and leaf. I also added a punched border and white lacey ribbon.

For the finished card I also added a ribbon and apple charm to the stem. The sentiment and pearls are also from Whiff of Joy.
