A Sweet New Year!

Posted on

Some of my nieces and nephews are Jewish and so they celebrate the Jewish New Year in early fall each year. One of the traditions of this holiday is the use of apples and honey to symbolize a sweet new year. And so I like to feature them in the cards that I send to the kids.

Jewish New Year Card

The apple was created using the Create a Critter cartridge from Cricut. And the honey comb was made using hexagon die cuts. I filled the honeycomb with Glossy Accents and a little bit of gold glitter. The be is the last one I had from an embellishment sheet that I bought a few years ago.

Apple Teacher card

This apple was made with the Cricut too but, I used a scalloped punch to make it look like he had a bite taken out of his delicious self. The honeycomb on this card is a stamped image from Paper Smooches Geo Graphic stamp set and it is filled with Glossy Accents and glitter too.

Create a Critter Apples

Nearly this entire card is made using the Create A Critter cartridge. I heat embossed clear powder on the apples to give them a shiny skin. And I snuck a tree branch in from the Lawn Fawn: Critters Down Under stamp set too.

I used an Action Wobble spring under each of these apples to give the cards an element of fun! It is oddly pleasing to give these apples a little pluck and watch them wobble back and forth. 🙂

Happy Stamping,

Mo

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
