Fall Card Series #5: Window Card feat. Catherine Pooler Appley Ever After

Hello friends. The next post in my Fall card series features a window card using the coordinating dies from the Catherine Pooler’s Appley Ever After stampset. This was a very easy card to make. To add texture to the background I added an embossed panel behind it (more on this later in the post).

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and another piece 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ which I embossed using the Catherine Pooler Designs Woven Coverplate (see your embossing machines instructions for proper sandwich).

I cut a piece of pattern paper from the Catherine Pooler Bushel and a Peck 6 x 6 Patterned Paper to 2-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and cut out three apple windows using the dies from the Appley Ever After Dies. I cut 2 pieces of red metallic cardstock from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock to 3/4 x 5-1/2″.

Then stamped a sentiment and two apples onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ from the Catherine Pooler Designs Appley Ever After Stamp Set with Midnight, Samba, It’s a Girl, Over Coffee, and Deck the Halls Inks. I added Foam Tape behind the top panel and adhered the apples and sentiment behind it before adhereing to the card base.

On the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment from the CP Joyful Thanks Sentiments Stamp Set with Samba Ink and added a strip of pattern paper measuring 1 x 5-1/2″.

Fall Card Series #2: Catherine Pooler Appley Ever After

Hello friends. The second card in my series is a really cute but simple card using the Catherine Pooler Designs Appley Ever After Stamp Set. There is no coloring required with these images so creating cards is a breeze!

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Catherine Pooler Bushel and a Peck 6 x 6 Patterned Paper to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I die cut the frame from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock using the Catherine Pooler Fall Frames Dies. I also die cut the inside piece from the frames from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″.

For the images, I die cut the basket from Stampin! Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock using the CP Bushel Basket Die, embossed it with the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (retired) and inked it with Stampin! Up! Early Espresso Ink. I used a piece of Lawn Fawn Paper Bag 100lb Cardstock to back the basket.

I stamped several of the apples from the Catherine Pooler Designs Appley Ever After Stamp Set onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with It’s a Girl, Samba, SaunaWintergreen, and Deck the Halls

I finished off the card by adding some Orange Marmalade Nuvo Jewel Drops.

On the inside of the card I added a piece of the same pattern paper measuring 1 x 5-1/2″ and added an apple.
