arrival of sweater weather and the smell of delicious made-from-scratch apple pie, an annual delicacy in our house on Thanksgiving Day! I couldn't resist making two matching cards to portray these simple pleasures!
My first card features an image printed from Flower Soft's CD, Recipes for Happy Families. I printed it and cut it out, then popped it on foam tape on a piece of cardstock cut to match the size of my other image, an apple pie Flower Soft topper from the Yummy Recipes collection. The edges of both images were sponged with Tim Holtz tea-dye distress ink, then stitched, matted and framed with yarn-tied teeny tiny buttons.
Mom is in her cozy chair knitting a warm scarf...toffee and strawberry ultrafine Flower Soft make the texture of the scarf look quite realistic. I debated adding some texture to her fur, but decided to let the yarn take center stage.
Toffee ultrafine also accents the crimps and cut edges of the pastry of this yummy pie! I added a little tinsel glitter to mimic a sprinkling of sugar as well! Doesn't it look scrumptious?!
These are larger cards, about 5 1/2 inches square...ever so often I like making this larger size because there's more room inside for signatures, which is perfect for a group like my Bible study girls to send as an encouragement.
I love that although one card was made with an image printed from a CD, and the other from a pre-printed image, their colors are in perfect harmony! They are simple and sweet, perfectly warm and cozy!
