polkadoodles challenge card in matching box

I love presenting cards in boxes this one
was made to size & the tag is a reflection
of the card inside, your greeting can be
written on the reverse

the challenge this week was to use a fruit shape &
a hidden dimension, I linked this with the cricut uk MB
challenge to use red & came up with a shiney apple

I clear embossed the red card
& welded two apples from HA cart
punched a hole through 3 layers
created the apple centre using cream & green
card stock the pip's have been coloured brown
then clear embossed as well
& hiding under the swing flap is our little
wiggly catterpillar so that's who made the hole!

cheeky little critter!


  1. Adorable and soooo clever! Love the little worm surprise! Too CUTE! and what a beautiful shiny red apple! Hugs! D
