Yesterday's Ways To Use It Challenge #234

This is my card (a day late, but I have my $1 Hee) for Ways To Use It "Sand It" Challenge:

I cased this adorable card by tradergirl: I showed this card to Dawn and she said that we may have to case it. I was thinking the same thing. So, when I saw this challenge, I thought ah-ha, I 'm gonna do that adorable apple card. So, here's to you tradergirl! TYFS.

I used this month's new Charlie release CHARLIE HARVEST TIME from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

WHAT I DID: I first made my own template by cutting out a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 rectangle from copy paper. I folded in half and drew my shape from the fold to the edge and cut. This was my template. I cut out this shape from my folded base and smaller ones from the black and dp. I decided to cut my black border punch layer on the diagonal. When this was all adhered down, I decided to stitch making it look like the blanket stitch. I love how it turned out. I stitched on stitch along the edge then one stitch toward the center to get this look. For my image I stamped it in black, cut it out with an edge, inked it using Tim Holtz blending tool and distress in Vintage Photo. Then Sanded it. I stamped and cut out the apple and colored it, inked the edges, popped it up and added dimensional glaze.

Thank you for visiting.
