Thank You, Teacher - CAS-ual Fridays CFC68 #2

I am back today with another card for CAS-ual Friday's latest challenge - {CFC68 Back To School}! I love CAS and I love making cards with apples (just check out my etsy store for proof - ha).

To start the card I embossed the card base with an alphabet impression plate and then stamped the sentiment using some of my new-to-me inks from Impress Rubber Stamps - {Fresh Ink}. These inks are nice and juicy and give great coverage. I did learn later I should have stamped the sentiment before embossing, as the 'thank you' wasn't as clear as it could be on the textured base.

Next I created my focal point using a notebook die cut and a paper-pieced apple. I used the same technique for the embossed strip as on {THIS} card and {THIS} card.
Just the details… (1) The card base was embossed with an alphabet plate, (2) the polka dot embossed strip was adhered with foam adhesive and aligned with the paper-pieced apple, (3) stamped the sentiment in 2 different ink colors onto the embossed card base.

Challenges used for this card:
