Apples for a special couple

If you view this post, it should count as two servings of fruit for you today. ;-)

I made this almost a year ago, as a thank you for a special couple who were our hosts at Christmastime. This card is chock-FULL of personal, custom details.

1.)  Our hosts' last name begins with the letter C. I used chipboard tiles from Girls' Paperie, and I ran an 18kt Gold Pen from Krylon around the edges of these tiles.

2.) Our hosts live on a street that is named for an apple. I used the stamp set, Apple of My Eye by Flourishes for the focal point, and colored with Copic markers. Just barely visible, I stamped the word 'apples' in the background very faintly.

3.) Our hosts' house # is 3.  Again, another chipboard piece from Girls' Paperie came to the rescue.

4.) Their home is cozy and full of style. I chose a gingham pattern to go along with the apples...I think they make a good match. :-)

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Absolutely beautiful, Colleen! The personal touches are wonderfully thoughtful, and the design is just fabulous. Gingham and apples always go together, I think. Love the burlap star and the overall warmth of this. Your coloring is super!
