Apple cards are sweet. The Apple Harvest stamp set is beautiful on its own but more effective when used with the coordinating dies. This card uses the 4 flower dies found in the Apple Blossom Dies. My initial idea was a white-on-white design but later decided to add a little colour. If you’re wondering, the flowers were dotted with sponge daubers dipped in Fresh Freesia. I then die-cut the long frame and stamped the greeting.
The stamp set offers the opportunity to colour. Use your different colouring tools and have fun.
If you notice, the Apple Blossom Dies include multiple flowers and leaves so that you can cut several at the same time. Please note that you will need a Cutting and Embossing Machine to use the dies.
This card was also stamped, die-cut and coloured using sponge daubers. Colours used were Sweet Sorbet, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam. I combined Blushing Bride and Sweet Sorbet on the apples. For a subtle colour, I first removed the excess ink onto a piece of scrap paper before sponging on the apples.
I hope you enjoyed this apple card inspiration and that you’ll give the Apple Harvest stamp set and it’s coordinating Apple Blossom Dies a go in all manner of crafting. Try them on packaging and gift-wrapping too. Other ideas include stamping the flowers on sticker paper to make your own stickers and personalised book labels. There’s never a shortage of uses for this stamp and dies bundle.
