I have been a bit busy lately, with not much time dedicated to crafting... about three months ago I started the process of applying to be an On-Call Fire Fighter, and this week I had my final interview and the last lot of assessments, and I'm so happy because I passed them all! It was hard work! (I have the bruises and aching muscles to prove it!)
All being well, I will start my initial training in January.
Anyway!! I do have a new card to show you today, using some of Karen Burniston's latest fantastic dies!
I used the Gift Card Accordion die set for the card base and die cut words, the Flourish Gift Frame for the beautiful all-in-one scrolly frames and white rectangle layer, and the Props 7 set for the cute little woven basket and apples.
The Gift Card Accordion is such a great set! It's a beautiful shape for a start, and really versatile, in that you can use the die cut slots to easily slide a regular size gift card into, or you can just cover them over and have a regular card.
For this card, I used an Apple gift card, and based the colours for the rest of the card around it. I actually used the cardboard packaging that the gift card came on, for the die cut apples, and the lovely graduated colour words.
The card is quite a simple one, and came together really quickly.
Isn't the apple basket sweet?! Karen designed it really cleverly so that you slot three simple pieces easily together for the woven look.
