This week at Color My Heart we are using colors from the Jubilee paper packet set to retire in a few days. I must admit, this paper packet wasn't one I thought I'd use much when it first came out. WRONG! The more I play with it, the more I love it.
Both the tag and apple are from the Artbooking cartridge. I started by inserting the tag at 4.5" then added the apple at 2.5". I positioned the apple inside the tag then cut. This process was easier to do with my Cricut Expressions machine but still doable with my new Explore. You have to do a little more finagling, but it's possible.
I wasn't fussy with cutting my strips of Jubilee paper. They are random widths and lengths and aren't perfectly flat. Some strips layer over the top of others. The points don't meet exactly, either, which is why there's a little heart gem covering them up. None of this is noticeable so it's not worth pulling your hair out as you put a card like this together.
Once the sunburst pattern was done and trimmed, I placed lots of foam tape around my apple tag and laid it over the top of the sunburst. I used small bits of foam tape to make sure the areas around the leaf and stem will stay up.
The sentiment was positioned to create a triangle of red with the baker's twine, heart gem, and sentiment banner.
I am also linking this up to Simon Says Stamps for the Emboss It challenge.
And now for my confession...I made this card on Sunday. It was one of those lazy mornings because our choir is on summer break. Thinking I had all the time in the world, I decided to work ahead on my CMH Design Team projects. When I looked at the clock again, it was 10:25 and I was still in my pajamas. It takes fifteen minutes to get to church and my husband had promised to pick someone up at 10:45 so I had five minutes to take a shower, get dressed, and fix myself up. Yep...skipped church. I'll be hearing about that for weeks!
Until next time,
