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.
