The Big Apple

Howdy All!!
I should of had this posted yesterday
but it was a rough weekend for us here at the Hover household...
or maybe I should say a sad weekend.
I won't go into all the details but it sure put a stop to what I had planned.

Anyhow, I do have a fun card to share today...finally.
As you all know the Design Team from The Cutting Cafe
gets together on the 7th and 21st of each month to show and share 
all our projects for that day, (which happens to be the 21st today)
all in one place on TCC blog.

We were to use any cut file of our choice but the 'twist' was to use fabric.
My original idea was to make a banner
but obviously that didn't happen.

I do however LOVE what I did put together and it came together very easily!

I used the Apple Shaped card file 
and the PDF version for it instead of my Cricut SVG file....
it was all hand cut and EASY!!

I first printed the top apple on card stock for a pattern,
cut it out, then I cut a piece of fabric slightly bigger then the apple,
I used Elmers Craft Bond Spray Glue
(and a spray box)
and sprayed the card stock apple
and quickly adhered my fabric (it dries fast)!
Then simply cut around it.

The leaves were cut from felt, and I added a rick rack bow and button to finish.

Make sure to pop on over later this afternoon at TCC  BLOG to see all
the projects from the team, there are some fabulous ideas there.
