Handmade cards are the perfect way to show your loved ones how much you care. The “apple of your eye” is sure to adore this stamped DIY card.


  • Cardstock or pre-cut blank card
  • Apple
  • Knife
  • Paper towels
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paper plates
  • Permanent marker


If using cardstock, trim your sheet to desired size and fold in half. Press along fold to crease.

Cut apple in half and pat cut side with paper towels to dry. Place a small amount of paint on a paper plate. Press cut side of apple in paint, ensuring it’s fully coated. Dab apple on clean paper plate to remove any excess paint.

Press cut side of apple on card, wiggling it slightly. Gently lift apple from card and let dry completely. Once dry, write greetings on the front and inside of the card.


ORANGE & FIELD TIP: Let your inner artist out because the possibilities here are endless. Customize your card with different colors of paint or a little hand-drawn worm coming out of your painted apple.
