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!
