It's that time again.
This month the challenge was to create a project inspired by any aspect of fall. It is hard for me accept that fall is just around the corner because I don't feel like we got to enjoy very much summer this year due to all the rain we have had but I can already feel it in the air though.
When I think of fall the first thing that comes to mind is Rosh Hashanah, which is the start of the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is always a Fall Holiday and is usually in September. This year it starts on September 18th and will be year 5770. So for this challenge this is what I came up with.
A tradition during this holiday is eating apples dipped in honey, it is a symbol of our wish for a sweet new year so the apple and the bees on the card signify that. I also included a shofar because it is another big part of the holiday as well. I started by finding an apple template then I cut it out of some Papertrey Pure Poppy Cardstock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. Next I cut out a leaf from Ripe Avocado cardstock and the stem from Dark Chocolate cardstock then embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder too and added them to the apple. I stamped the Shofar from from the Mazel Tov Set on Summer Sunrise Cardstock and embossed it with CTMH Denim embossing powder after that I cut it out with the Label 1 die and embossed it and matted it on piece of SU Pumpkin Pie Cardstock that I also cut out with the Label 1 Die and embossed too. After that I stamped some bees from the Honey Bee Set with Momento Black Ink then colored in the stripes with a yellow Copic marker and cut them out. The sentiment is from the Mazel Tov Set as well.
Inside the card you will find a blank space to write a message on and another bee. This card also qualifies for the Cuttlebug Challenge #45 too. That's it for now. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else that is participating came up with. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night.
