Apple Card & Hanging Candle

This card was created using the new Spellbinder's Apple Die Template.  I made it to go with the matching Hanging Candle.
The Hanging Candle was created using the Nestie Instant Coffee jar.  The insert that holds the candle is a Ortega Green Chili can.  I covered the can with My Mind Eye Paper.  I created this Hanging Candle to match my card, but you you use this same idea for birthdays, weddings, holidays, anything you might need.  Hope you enjoyed my creation.

Cherry Card

This card was made from the New Spellbinder's Cherry Impressability and Apple Die Template.  I inked the Impressability once in red and then in green and embossed each one.  Then hand cut each cherry out and layered it onto the green one.  Finished layering the card and it turned out beautiful.  It did not take that long.  I hope you like it.

An Easter Card

Here is a Easter card I made using Spellbinder's Oval Die Template and Impressability.  The basket is made from the Spellbinder's Long Scalloped Rectangle.  Words are from Just Rite.  What a quick and wonderful card.
