Love You to the Core


Here's an apple card for this week's back-to-school challenge at CASual Fridays:


As Jenny mentioned, I've never sent a back-to-school card (although maybe that would make my 3rd grader a little less sad about the prospect of his fun-filled, lazy, summer days coming to an abrupt end) so I used a classic school icon instead. The apple.


The outside shows the whole apple (patterned with a Martha Stewart stamp) with just a "love you" on the leaf. When you lift the flap you see the inside of the apple and the rest of the message.


 Glossy accents are on the black seeds (the glossy accents on the right seed kind of collapsed when drying, so I guess that one is a dried seed!)

 Thanks for looking!
-Kelly

Supplies used:
stamps:  PTI Tiny Tags, Martha Stewart Backgrounds
impression plates: PTI stripes

dies:  Memory Box Delicate Chain Border, Cricut
other: glossy accents

  1. This is so cute. I'm sure it will ease the pain, just a bit, of trading bathing suits for pencils.

  5. Oh wow, Kelly!! This is one VERY cool card! Love the puny sentiment and crisp and bright colors against the kraft card stock!! Love it to bits! So glad that you played with us at CAS-ual Fridays! It's always a pleasure to see your lovely work! And my son (who is off to college) has the same feelings as your 3rd grader about the lazy summer coming to an abrupt end :) Some things never change!
