The first thing I created was the acorn. I used a Teardrop Christmas Bauble die from Frantic Stamper to create it. When I was playing with it I all of a sudden saw an acorn! I first impressed the Woodgrain Card Panel die into the dark brown cardstock to make the texture for the acorn. Then, I used the Bauble die to cut the "acorn" out. Next, I cut the Bauble again with the patterned paper and then trimmed off the top part with scissors to create the cap. I also trimmed off the top hanger part of the die with scissors as well. When I was finished I was so happy with the acorn shape! I tied a little linen thread around the top to make a bow and added a sequin.
The background was cut using the Woodgrain Panel die again. Doesn't it look so different both cut and impressed (into the acorn)? Love that you can get both looks from one die! The sentiment was computer generated.
I was inspired by several challenges when I made this card!
First was the Cutting Edge Challenge #12 using Amy's card for inspiration.
Next, was the Simon Says Challenge Monday Challenge Letter "O" challenge. I used "O" for Orange & October!
And last, I used the colors from the Paper Players #217 Challenge with some neutrals thrown in.
The dies I used on this card are:
