Caramel Apple Thank U - Whimsie Doodles

Pin It Have you joined in on this week's Whimsie Wednesday Challenge?! Melyssa has challenged our fans/readers to create a project that uses a die. How easy is that?

For my card today, I have used one of Whimsie Doodles' new digital cutting files - Caramel Apple Card Shape. Instead of making the foldover card with the template, I paper pieced just one side of the apple together and placed it front-and-center on the card.

For the die cut requirement of the challenge, I die cut a "U" that was placed on the die-cut sentiment tag. To stamp the "Thank" text on the tag, a stamp from Whimsie Doodles' How Sweet rubber stamp set was masked and stamped in brown. This was then tied onto the caramel apple stick, which was cut from wood-like paper.

I hope you wll join in on the challenge. You can get all of the details HERE on how to play along and be entered to win Whimsie Doodles goodies.
Just the details… (1) Tied the Thank U tag onto the card with some twine and placed three gems for some sparkle, (2) Tore a page out of my Dollar Tree dictionary for the background paper, if you look closely you can see the definition for "teach" is visible, (3) Adhered some ruffled lace around the card front.
