How Sweet It Is – Caramel Apple

The challenge at Jitterbuggin this week is to follow the sketch, use red, green and yellow, use an apple, include something black and, of course, use the Cricut.  I am also entering this card in My Sheri Crafts Challenge #23 – Autumn. 

My card is titled “how sweet it is” and I used the Hannah Montana cartridge for the font, which I cut in black.  I then cut “sweet” out in red and glued over the black.   The oval frame is cut from Lacy Labels, a Lite cartridge from Walmart.   The apple is from Create A Critter and I caramelized it by using a dripping scoop of ice cream from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I used Design Studio to tweak the ice cream to conform to the top of the apple.  I cut the stem and leaves of the apple off and added a stick to complete it.  I coated the caramel with Glossy Accents to give it a sheen.  I used a Marvy corner punch on all four corners of the plaid background and added a yellow skittle to each corner.  The doodling was done with black and white Sharpie Poster-Paint markers.

For the inside of the card, I used the same apple (cut without the facial features) and left the stem and leaves on.
