Apples for the Teachers - Apple on Inky Patchwork

     Here is the second card to go in the teacher goodie bag that I wrote about yesterday. This is my first time using the Impression Obsession "Mini Pattern" stamps that I purchased last year - in August - I think. I stamped them on a Palette Mirror (looks a bit like a gelly plate) then stamped this onto white card stock. Essentially I created my own patterned paper. 

Card and Envelope
 I used the same technique to make the apples inside the card - adding a die-cutting step.
