Comfort Food And Tutorial

It's November already - where has the year gone!?! which means cooler weather. Time to pull out the comfy, cozy sweaters (for the dog too!) and my favourite comfort food recipes. 

My mom makes the best apple crisp out there! I grew up making this tummy warming dessert for my family. When I saw the "Apple Pie Mouse" stamp from the new Fall/Winter release from High Hopes Stamps, I knew he would be perfect to make a card that could share one of my fav comfort foods of fall. 






I have done a tutorial on my version of a criss cross card - it is quite picture heavy so I have done a separate post for it - here's the link if you would like to take a look and give it a try. 

I coloured my image and cut it out using a classic circle die. After cutting out my card base I finished it off with patterned paper and a border cut with a die. The recipe itself was typed up on my computer and then decorated using matching patterned papers. An apple brad (gifted to me from a very special crafty friend ) and some ribbon are the finishing touches.
