Cinema Saturday #51 - "All About Eve" Challenge - Part Deux

TWO inspirations for this weeks Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - I know, I know! WOW for me! giggle

Still following the apple theme inspired by the main character Eve - this design uses retired SU! designer series paper Summer Picnic. This time - I focused on the "ultimate role" Eve manipulated to get - which did indeed catapult her into the stardom she had always dreamed of - the star role as Cora. Thus my glittery apple "core" - isn't it cute? I created it using the Round Tab Punch out of Confetti White. Then I punched another one out of Real Red and used my Paper Snips to cut off just the top and bottom edges, and attached them to the Confetti White core. For the seeds, I punched the smallest flower in the Boho Flower Punch, and used my Paper Snips to cut out the seeds. The criss crossed Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon shows how, for Eve, all paths lead to the temptation of the sparkling apple, the ultimate role of Cora. And Eve certainly tasted of the fruit and learned the knowledge of good and evil because of it. Ooo - cards with symbolism - heehee! ;)

On the other hand - being just a card, I needed to make it a card I could actually send for any general reason. So I chose the verse, "Each of us is God's special work of art." from the retired stamp set Words of Wisdom. I used my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write to color each part of the verse, so I could stamp it separately and punch it out using the Word Window Punch. It goes along with the apple and apple seeds - did you know that the numbe rof seeds in an apple indicates how many times a bee visited the blossom? We learned that on a homeschool orchard field trip last Fall! (This verse is also the lesson Eve failed to learn - couldn't resist adding more symbolism! lol) ENJOY!

P.S. All supplies used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
