Acorn Card

Give Thanks Acorn card

I just love making cards of different shapes and so I made this acorn card. You would think that I would have had enough of these guys. I can't tell you how many wheelbarrow loads of acorns we have picked up this fall.  We need more squirrels I guess!

My card actually hinges just under the cap. 
After cutting the cap, I scored it every 1/4" in two diagonal directions. This gave me the texture I was looking for.

The base was stamped with the swirled image from BAROQUE MOTIFS # 113490

My sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink# 102283 and embossed with gold  embossing powder #109129.
The sentiment is from the Hostess set HOLIDAY BEST #115364

The leaves were die cut using my BIG SHOT SIZZIX machine# 113439 and the Originals die LEAVES#2  
 # 113459. The edges of the leaves were sponged in chocolate chip classic ink #100908.

I hope this inspires you to step of out the box occasionally!

Thanks for stopping by....
