Punched Apples

This is another one of my cards created mainly with punched images rather than stamps.  School will be here before you know it, so I thought some apples were in order for our teachers!

For this card, I used Real Red cardstock as the base and then rolled Rough Texture in Real Red onto a piece of Very Vanilla to create the background.  Then I adhered a piece of Basic Black across the middle to set off the punched apples.

In order to create the apples, I used the Tag Punch and punched 3 Very Vanilla tags and just left them unfolded.  Then I also punched 1 tag out of Garden Green and 2 out of Real Red.  I cut the ends off and adhered to the ends of the Very Vanilla to create the top and bottom rinds.  In Basic Black, I stamped a small flower in the center of the apples to look like seeds.  As a final touch, I cut three small strips out of Chocolate Chip and adhered to the top for the stems.
