Apple for the Teacher | by Tracey McNeely


Have you had a chance to check out the brand new An Apple A Day craft dies over at Birch Press Design? This fun set of three dies is perfect for creating for school themed projects. Today I am going to share with you a fun project creating a card for the hard working teacher in your life.

I created a video for you to see how I created my apples. I love how there are so many techniques and colouring mediums you can use along with dies and stamps from Birch Press Design!

I used the An Apple A Day dies to cut the apples, leaves and stems from my Distress Inked panels…


Adhered the apples together and attached to the card with adhesive and foam tape.

I added my ‘thanks’ from the Calligraphy Pop Thanks and sentiment from the Just Because clear stamps. Once the card was assembled I added Glossy Accents to the smallest apple. I applied it much slower than the speeded up video and I used a straight pin to pop any bubbles that formed. I let the Glossy Accents dry for about 2  hours before I took the final photos.

A closer look at the texture on the apples…

The completed card…

I hope that I inspired you to make something fun with the new Apple A Day craft dies. Used together or alone they are fabulous. We will see you again next Tuesday for more crafty inspiration!
