Happy Fall Yall

Hi everyone! I know, what is Aymee thinking....a fall card in the middle of the summer?! LOL. Well, I was working on things to submit for publication and decided to make a card too. So I put a new spin on an idea I had back in the day. I think I had been scrapbooking maybe about 6 months before I talked my hubby into buying me a Cricut machine. After he did, I knew I had to have the Home Accents cart and this 'caramel apple' is one of the first things I had to make. I had the idea in my head for some time, but wasn't sure how to make it on my own. Thank goodness for the Cricut machine, right?! Love that thing! So anyways, I used my Cricut to cut this apple out. I then cut the apple out again on the 'blackout' function and cut it in half. After cutting in half, I used my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch to make the 'caramel' look like it was dripping down the apple. I then added a stick made out of raffia and tied the whole thing up with some leftover clear wrapping that I had. Last, I tied it all together with a bow and added a price tag. After I finished the apple, I created a simple easel card (yall know they are my fave...hope you aren't getting tired of looking at them...tee hee) to mount it on. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner to adhere all of my paper and I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere the apple....believe me, the apple is not going anywhere! It is solid as a rock...gotta love Helmar! I also incorporated a bit of stitching, embossing, the use of a punch, and rhinestones into my card. The sentiment is rub on's from American Crafts. Here it is....Happy Fall Yall! (Click on the pic to make it bigger if ya want)
