An Apple a Day...

A few days ago a customer hired me to make her some Teacher Appreciation cards. She wanted them to be able to hold gift cards, and they had to say M.P. teacher (the initials of the school).

These little apple cards were what I came up with! :) I'm really pleased with how they turned out. The apple shape was freehanded. I used Cranberry and Clover Meadow cardstock (CTMH) and used cuttlebug folders to emboss them. I sponged the edges with the same ink color for depth. The M and P are from the CTMH Headline Alphabet stamp set (inked in Sorbet), and the "teacher" is from Family Ties Adults stamp set, stamped/sponged in cranberry ink on a Dimensional Elements tag.

Inside the card is a little pocket just the perfect size for a gift card. :)
