This Fall card was inspired by some acorns my son collected in a park behind our house. He just had a ball picking them up and throwing them into a lake. We even took some home for hours a more fun with a dump truck.
With the acorn inspiration in hand, I was off to create this card. Here is the recipe:
Acorn; 2.75" from "B is for Boy"
Leaves; 2" & 1.75" from "B is for Boy"
Autumn; 3.5" from "Stretch Your Imagination"
Frame Base; 3.5" x 1.25" (sized using Gypsy) from "Gypsy Wanderings"
Frame Outline; 3.5" x 1.25" (sized using Gypsy) from "Gypsy Wanderings"
Cuttlebug; "Distressed Stripes"
Kraft Brown Card Stock (11"x4.25" folded in half)
Kraft Brown Card Stock
Brown Card Stocks
Yellow / Orange Card Stock (3.75" x 3.5")
Green Pattern Paper (4" x 5.25")
Yellow poka dot ribbon
Stampin Up Chocolate Brown Ink
Cut the list of cuts above in desired card stock and assemble pieces. Fold 11"x4.25" card base in half. Cut a 4" x 5.25 piece of pattern paper and 3.75" x 3.5" of orange / yellow card stock. This last piece will need to be embossed with "Distressed Stripes", rip the bottom off and then crumpled into a ball for additional texture. Adhere these layers together and tie ribbon towards the top of the card. Adhere this to the card base and now it time to start layering all the elements. The acorn and the Autumn frame edges were inked. The acorn was popped up with foam adhesive. Lastly, I place the bow over where the leaves connect. Voila, a cute Autumn card!
I hope you enjoyed this card, it is one of my Fall favorites. I am entering this into the My Craft Spot Design Team search. Clink the link to check it out or even audition yourself.
