Winter Apples

I am so honored to have been selected to be a guest designer for Embellish-It Scrapbooking (see sidebar for link) for the month of December. So, I will be posting each Thursday using stamps and supplies that can be found at this terrific online store.

For my first card, I am using Time for Apple Pie by Sarah Kay. The background paper is Euphoria by Basic Grey. Both the stamp and the paper can be found at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. I used my Fiskars border punch for the snowflake borders.
I colored my imaging using Copics. I added a little C1 gray to the green to soften it a bit. I wanted to give a real snowy feel to the card, so I added flock as a base under her feet. I then added some faux snow that I found in a Christmas display last year. The snow is usually used to decorate a home, but I love the feel of falling snow it adds to the picture.
I layered some paper flowers for the embellishment. I used Martha Stewart leaf and branch punches for the flower base. I topped it off with a Hodge Podge brad from Stampin' Up! and finished it off with some charms for a little extra zing. It is hard to see in the picture, but I included Stickles to the flower to add a little more pizazz.

Go visit Embellish-It Scrapbooking to see their great selection of stamping/scrapbooking supplies. Also check out the sale items as they are offering some great deals right now. Check quick as you don't want to miss this sale. Have a fantastic day!
