School Days, School Days...I'm Given Away School Days


My DIL is a teacher and I bet she has more apple themed "stuff" than she cares to; but I think ANY teacher or back to school munchkin would appreciate this adorable Apple Shaped Card from The Cutting Cafe !

Regina has made creating this darling card sooo simple. Just print and cut. The sentiment circle is also a Cutting Cafe original from the set called, "School Days", of course!

I traced the stem onto PTI Dark Chocolate CS then glued it to the card stem and free handed the leaves. My little worm is from SU's Bugs and Kisses. The "bite" was made using SU's scalloped circle punch. I sponged the edges of the card for depth, stamped circles using the single dot from SU's Simple Shapes, then traced my "bite" in SU Chocolate Chip marker. Worm is heat embossed in clear EP and popped up on dimensionals as is the sentiment.

If you've read this far...I have a treat for you!

I absolutely love this apple. I am a teacher and have been trying to complete my own back to school gifts for my co-workers and others teachers. This is so adorable. Do you know if this can be cut on a Cricut??

What a cute card. My daughter has decorated her her kitchen in apples, and this would be a cheery greeting to place on her frig (where else, LOL) I would love to win this, and know that I would find many uses for it.
