Welcome Divas! I'm so glad you have stopped by for a taste of one of my favorite fall treats! There's nothing like a warm mug of mulled cider (with the optional shot of spiced rum) on a cool, crisp autumn evening sitting around the fire pit with good friends. I created this card using my new Harvest Blessings Digital Stamp Set. I've included my favorite mulled cider recipe below...

To start this savory fall creation you will need #5060J - Harvest Blessings Digital Stamp Set . Size the main image (the Apples/Jug) to 4-1/2" x4" and place in one half of the page. I added a few sentiments not exceeding 1-1/4" and placed across the page on the space I left between the 2 card images I had place on the page.
Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® markers.
A full list of Copic® markers are listed above.
Punch out your sentiment using the Recollections® punch.
Position the next to largest Elizabeth® 1114 Fitted Oval Die around the jug and apples part of the image.
Trace the inside of the die around the twigs as shown.
Fussy cut the upper part of the twigs using the lines you traced as guides. Cut just past the lines enough to slide the die under the twigs.
Run through the Big Shot®.
Using the Kraft Cardstock and the largest oval die; cut oval to mount Image on.
Edge the sentiment, the image and the Kraft oval using VersaMagic® Wheat. Let Dry. Then edge all three again using Memento® Toffee Crunch.
Cut a 4-1/2" x 7" rectangle of Blue Fern Studios® -Adorn/Frolic for the top flap. Cut a 7"x7" square of the Red & Tan gingham for the bottom flap.
Center the Image oval on the Kraft Oval and adhere.
Cut a 7"x12" Core`dinations® - Great White rectangle to make the cardbase. Score and fold at 4" and again at 9". (The 4" flap is the top of your card.) This is an envelope Fold cardbase.
Using the Wave Lace Border Die align starting in the lower left of the 4" flap across the 7"width. (Flip the flap backwards before running through the Big Shot so that you do not cut the cardbase into multiple pieces.)
Using the Wave Lace Border Die on to the Blue Fern Studios® -Adorn/Frolic trace along the straight edge and fussy cut. Adhere the Adorn/Frolic to the upper
flap only as shown.
Trim off any excess that sticks past the top fold.
On the 7"x7" square of Gingham, score and fold at 4".
Adhere the 4" part to the lower flap, fold over the upper part as to sandwich the lower flap in between.
Center the oval image from side to side and adhere to the top flap only. Be careful not to glue the card shut.
Adhere the sentiment using Foam Tape as shown.
I always like to add a little optional to the backside of my cards.
My OPTIONAL: Using a scrap of each of the papers used to make the card, arrange and adhere to the backside with a name plaque.
Doesn't this inspire you to make your own Apple Cider creation and a warm mulled cider to take the chill off your crafting afternoon?
