Quilted Apple


Woo Hoo! I'm the Guest Designer at Inking It Up Crazy this week.....I'm sooooo excited to have this opportunity. For my project, I made a Quilted Apple card.


I come from a long line of quilters, and I love to make them in paper. To make the quilted background, you need nine 1 1/2" squares of cardstock. I chose to run them through the Cuttlebug to add some texture.....don't forget to ink the edges! (Everything looks better with inked edges - my favorite one is Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan) Attach the squares onto a 4 1/2" square piece of cardstock in rows of three. Now you need some stitchin'! I HATE sewing so I did mine with a Sharpie....but you could machine stich around it. I attached a 4 3/4" square of brown to my 5" gold cardstock card....and placed the quilt in the center. Added some more faux stitchin' with a white gel pen. Oh, and ink those edges!!!

The apple is from Doodlecharms, cut at 3". I cut the shadow in brown, the base layer in green and brown cardstock for structure, and cut the top layer in argyle. Inked all the edges before I attached them....and cut off the brown stem and attached it with pop dots. Doodled around it with the white Jelly Roll pen. The little worm is from Create a Critter, cut at 2". I cut the base in brown - the middle in the rusty red - and the top layer in green. I used a coordinating green paper rather than the cardstock as it cut cleaner and had a little more texture to it. Added details with my Sharpie....inked some cheeks...and little white gel pen accents. Finished it off with a big, sheer bow.

The sketch is from PaperCraft Star and this one fits the Cricut Cardz Challenge "Back to School"! All of that white pen faux stitchin' fits right in with Practical Scrappers this week too!
