Wednesday November 11,2020....Around The World On Wednesday Blog Hop

The theme for this month's blog hop is "The Market" with a focus on texture. 

For my card, I immediately thought of a fruit and vegetable market...who doesn't love to stroll through a summer market and choose all the lovely produce!

 I immediately thought of the Harvest Hello bundle, and chose to go with apples!

For my fun fold  card I really went over the top trying to create lots of texture.

 My card base is Granny Apple Green card stock that I embossed with the Old World Paper 3-D embossing folder number 153200 found on page 185.
Next l used the Buffalo Check background stamp with Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock is found on page 138 item number 151372. 

Here is a look at the inside of my card when it’s open:

Next I took a piece of Real Red card stock and embossed it again with Tasteful Textile 3-D embossing folder number 152718 found on page 185

Next, I took a piece of the Good Taste designer series paper found on page 123 item number 152494. 

I chose one of the wood grain papers and,  since I was going over the top with texture; I chose to actually dry emboss this paper as well, using the Pinewood Planks 3-D embossing folder found on page 185 item number 152320. 

After I had embossed this, I grabbed a sponge and some Early Espresso ink and highlighted the raised areas by sponging them.

Next, I grabbed my Harvest Hellos bundle found on page 89 item number 150581. 

I stamped the Apple image in Momento Black ink and I coloured it with my Real Red and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. 

I punched out the apple using the coordinating punch, but then decided that I wanted to use my paper snips to trim the images so there was no white outline… 

Here’s a tip: I used a Basic Black marker around the edges of the apples to hide and to touch up any areas where you could see white. 

I took these apples, and once again went to my Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine (I call it BIG BOSS), and using my Subtle 3-D embossing folder item number 151775 found on page 185, to emboss the apples as well! 

Here is a couple of photo close-ups... hopefully you can see all the beautiful depth and texture in this card

For my greeting I stampeded the greeting using Momento Black ink on Whisper White card stock… then I simply grabbed my paper snips and cut the words apart. I glued these flat on the front of the card using Tombow glue.

I attached the apples to my card front glueing one flat, and popping the other one up with dimensionals.

I am really pleased with how this card turned out… The texture is over the top, and it’s a fun fold. too!

This has made ME smile. I love the texture that you've added to the apples themselves. Great that you've not just focused your texture on the background. I love it x

Teri West said...

Great Autumn card full of texture!

Aurélie said...

Fun and very farmer's market! I love !

Chris Smith said...

I love all of the ways you've added texture on this adorable little fun fold. The subtle folder on the apples is a wonderful idea - I'll have to try that one.

Angie McKenzie said...

Love all the textures that you definitely see at a farmer's market!! I love going to them here... they are so awesome! The texture that you added to the apples adds such depth to them.

Anne Marie Hile said...

Shel, this is darling! I love the pop of buffalo check and woodgrain with the apples. Plus the embossed detail on the apples and the card front. This card just has a lot of awesome texture and it totally reminiscent of a farmer's market. Love it!
