Apples for the Jewish New Year

Hello Stampers!

Hetty here with two card ideas for the Jewish New Year.
For both cards I used the "color-sandwich"- technique
from newsletter June/July 2011

If you want to know more about the Jewish New Year and its symbols
please go HERE for further reading.
One of the symbols you see on many of the Jewish cards is an apple.
We eat a sweet apple with honey to wish each other a very sweet year.

This weekend I was at the StempelMekka in Hagen, Germany. A big stamp show
and I met Judy from Judikins and found she had this sweet apple I just had to have
for my New Year cards. 
The color sandwich technique was perfect for the card I wanted to make.
The apple is from their new  Posh Impressions range of stamps
and I already had the bee. So this was a great combination.
I added some glossy accent to the apples to make it look like
the honey drops of the aplles.
The Hebrew sentiment translates to: A happy and prosperous year
and is embossed with gold embossing powder. 
For the second card I used an image by Create with TLC
and the apple by Judikins. The are hjust beautiful together.
You might wonder about the numeber on the apples: 5772.
Well, that is the numeral  of the new Jewish Year. 
For the inside of my cards I used this fun stamp
that is  from Zum Gali Gali.

Have a creative day!
