Candy Apple with my Framelits!

Good morning stampers! It's fall in full swing here in Maine and it's also apple picking season! I thought I would try my hand at creating a dipped apple for you today. Here's my project:

The apple was made using the "Ovals Collection Framelits Dies". I use "Real Red Cardstock" and sponged all the edges using a "Sponge Dauber" and "Real Red Ink". I then used a piece of scrap paper that I cut by hand in a wavy fashion and layed it on the top of my apples. I then used a "VersaMark Ink Pad" and ink up the whole bottom of the apple by pouncing my ink pad. Sprinkle "Early Espresso Embossing Powder" and set with a "Heat Tool":

You can see the shinyness of the embossing powder in the photo above. I added a white squiggly line using a "White Signo Gel Pen". The leaves are from the "Bird Punch" and the sentiment is from the "Sweets for the Sweet" stamp set cut with the "Small Oval Punch".

I glued a Popsicle stick to the back of the card using "Sticky Strip" and added a few leaves from the "Bird Punch" and finished off my project with a small ribbon bow!

This is what the card looks like when standing. I hope you have enjoyed my project for today. Thanks for stopping by to visit!
