Sweet Red Apples

Here's a clean and simple card using Apple of My Eye, one of the fun digi's which are on sale this week at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps at 25% off!  
I used red card stock for the apples and then sponged red ink along the edges for added dimension, popping them up, and finally adding crystal glaze for shine - and all that seems to be lost here in my photo, however!
In keeping with the country apple orchard theme, I added gingham, twine and buttons.  
Sometimes I tell myself "....just step away from the dp....put it down and step away, come on,
 you can do it!" :)  I made a completely dp-free card, and hopefully all the clean, crisp white space makes a great contrast with the deep red and bright green!
Supplies include:
Stampin Up Real Red card stock
Anita's Crystal Gloss
Fiskars Corner Rounder

Sweet! Love those adorable apples. Your card is perfectly CAS. Love all the white space so the red and green just pop! The twine and gingham are perfect accents.

Will have to check out the sale at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Thanks!
