Falling For You

Hello! Last week my son and I, along with his preschool class, took a trip to an apple farm to pick apples. What a fun time we had... I just love fall and I find all the new colors and activities of this season so inspiring. Which leads me to the card inspired by fall and our apple picking trip...
Attached a strip of Distressed Dots pattern paper to the kraft card base.
Die cut a Spiral Notebook Page from rustic cream cardstock and stamped a tree trunk and leaves from the newly released Merry Little Christmas set. Then stamped the apples and a sentiment from the Falling Leaves set. Wrapped the top with chocolate baker's twine, attached it to the card base with dimensional adhesive and embellished with buttons. Here's A Tip: I sometimes double up on the adhesive (for twice the height or dimension) to allow for enough room to tuck buttons under the focal image.

Thanks for stopping by!
