Bucket Full of Apples

This was a fun card to make. I usually shy away from the paper-piercing because it is so tedious but the Essentials Piercing Pack includes a square frame so it made it much easier. I also had fun painting the apples and bucket. I used Crystal Effects (101055) on the apples to make them shine and Shimmer Ink in Frost White (on sale now, 116854) on the bucket to give it a silvery shine. I hope you can see it in the photo. Scroll down to see a list of all the products I used and the dimensions.

Animal Magnetism Too

Well, I couldn’t stop with the animal prints. This time I used more vibrant colors and made them even a bit crazy! These would make such a fun gift but you need to remember to tell your recipient that they will need additional postage when mailing them. Have FUN!
