  • 3. Use punch to round both card layers at bottom right corner.
  • 4. Die cut/emboss two Nested Apples #2 shapes from plaid paper; use scissors to remove stems. Die cut/emboss small circle from olive/white mini dot paper. Using foam squares, adhere die cuts to card on angle to create bow tie; use double layer of foam under circle to build up dimension.
