From Oranges and Lemons to even Limes, we were using the fabulous Sweet Citrus Bundle for this month’s papercraft class. My ladies had the chance of making three cards, choosing one of this design in either Oranges, Lemons or Limes.
Creating a mask from the spare sheet of acetate that comes in most Stamp Sets, we were able to blend ink through the die cut circle. This gave a wonderful backdrop for our fruit and sentiment.
Using Daffodil Delight, we stamped the outer edges of the fruit before using the same colour to ink up the insides. Lining these images up within the Hybrid Embossing Folder, allowed us to both Emboss and die cut at the same time.
Stamping a series of leaves with Granny Apple Green and die cutting, gave us plenty to scatter around our fruit.
Where our card with Lemons sat upon a lighter Tahitian Tide cardbase, our Oranges sat upon a Pacific Point card. Omitting the whole lemon shape in place of a larger slice of Orange, the layout was just the same. Pumpkin Pie was the perfect colour for the outer edge and Mango Melody for the centre.
A trio of flowers scattered amongst the fruit and embellished with Milky Dots was added to complete our cards.
Now to create the Limes, which I meant to do and share.
