Now, Begin Thy Magic Spell

“A poisoned apple! Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho! One taste of the Poisoned Apple, and the victim’s eyes will close forever in the Sleeping Death. Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through.” – Evil Queen

The recipe, you desire? You sure? Hopefully no draught of living death here:


Prep Time: 20 minutes Craft Time: 1 day-ish Yield: 1 card


Spray the Red Warm Tim Holtz Cardstock with a very liberal layer of Candied Apple Red Distressed Ink and allow to dry. The dry time is many hours ( think 6+), however, it will dry. Print the Digi image from The Graphics Fairy on craft card stock. Apply Distressed crayon in Bubling Cauldron using the stencil over the printed Digi image to achieve the background. Use the Time Holtz Green Cold Cardstock in combination with his Poison embossing folder to add a second layer. Then use a mixture of Candied Apple Red and Aged Mahogany on the embossed paper to give it a slight red tint. By now the red cardstock should be dry, using the Cricut and SVG files, cut it out along with the lime green to form the apple. The SVG is available through Cricut. Liberally apply Peeled Paint Distressed Ink and Bubling Cauldron Distress Mica Spray to the lime green cut cardstock. While still wet, add the hot glue to the edges to form the ooze. Immediately after adding the glue, with the ink still somewhat wet, use your embossing gun or heat tool to melt the glue; this will help incorporate the ink into the glue to give it the green ooze look. Type your sentiment and cut it to size with a paper trimmer. Use Aged Mahogony Distress Oxide Ink to ink the sides of your sentiment. Last, just some glue to put the layers together.
