365 Cards - Day 77 White Space Challenge

I found a new challenge blog which is really ambitious - a new challenge every day!  It's 365 Cards.  The card I created is based on the White Space Challenge, which is basically to keep all decorations on one half of your card.  I've been in a "Clean and Simple" mood lately, so this appealed to me.  Here's my design:

I think I might make a bunch of these up to give as a Teacher Gift this year.  The whole design started from me playing around with Close To My Heart's 1.25" Circle Punch.  I realized you could make a cute apple.

To make the apple, punch two circles - one red (Tulip) and one green (Clover Meadow).  Then use the punch on the red circle to take the "bite" out of the apple.  Punch the green circle a second time to make the leaf.  Then cut a small strip of green to be the stem and that's it.  I mounted my apple on top of a 2" Black scallop cut-out.  

The stamped images came from the Classmate Alphabet Stamp Set.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love it, Joelle - crisp like a fresh apple!
    I'd say you scored on the white space challenge, my friend!

  2. Very sweet and sure to be appreciated! I love 365 Cards but don't get to play as often as I'd like.


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
