Insipid Apple

Carol's Sketches are now back after the Christmas and New Year break and this is a fab little sketch too!
I've been good and have used scraps from a previous project - I am trying very hard not to buy any new stash until I've made a dent in what I have and that includes using up scraps!

The papers are from Funky Daze and the square shape has been printed onto vellum. The apple is a Sizzix die and I've added gems to the swirls along with two gems on the corners of the vellum. As they hide the big blobs of glue as I was not as careful as I should have been!

I've used the largest die in the Spellbinders Nestabilities for the focus of the card. The ribbon across the centre is organza chocolate brown double tied and it just pulls it all together. I've handwritten the sentiment.

The apple is not how I intended it to turn out and it would have probably looked worse than it does. One insipid apple!

  • Backing papers: Funky Daze from Funky Hand
  • Dies: Sizzix for the apple, Spellbinder Nestabilities for the shape
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. Your description just cracks me up!! The apple is fab, not insipid!! and i can't see the glue, so you've done a good job of hiding it!! The card is lovely Ruth, it's good to see you back too...thanks for joining in :)
