This week at The Cutting Cafe, we are focusing on the colour green! We had three different file sets we could choose from and I picked the Apple Box Set!
No file is just what it seems to be. I love to dissect the contents and see what else I can make. The obvious would be to make a box, but I went outside my box and created a card.
I used the PDF version of this set and took a snapshot of the apple and then opened it in Paint. Next I saved it as a jpeg and then imported it into my Silhouette software. I traced the image to create cutting lines and VOILA!!!! It was now an apple cutting file.
I cut the apple twice, once in kraft cardstock and then again in the green floral pattern. I cut the stem off the green floral apple and then layered it on top of the kraft apple. This way I have a kraft stem and a green apple. Clever huh?
I added this 3D flower (from the Silhouette online store) and a Dew Drop in the center. I tied a bow out of my favourite ribbon and then added some stitching out of twine and a button for fun.
I embossed the white background using my Swiss Dot folder and added a sweet little tag for my sentiment.
I hope you will visit again tomorrow for my Little Red Wagon reveal. Our challenge this week is Easter.
Thanks for stopping by!
