Acorny Hello

Happy Sunday.  It is a typical fall day here in PA…a little cloudy and cool.  Definitely sweater weather today, which I love!  I am having a good time stamping with the Acorny Thank You stamp set, although this is not a thank you note.  I have several older aunts, who are in assisted living facilities and I love to send them several cards a month in between my visits.  This is one I will be sending just to say hello.

This card came together very quickly using the Acorn Builder Punch along with the stamp set.  This is available in a bundle which is always a good value.  The card base is Crumb Cake layered with a piece of DSP from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper. I cut the circle using the Circles Collection Dies.  Then cut a frame using the same die along with the next larger one in Old Olive cardstock.  The Hello sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set.

The acorns were punched out using Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip cardstock and embossed  with a couple of retired embossing folders to give the acorns a little texture and “tied” together with Pumpkin Pie cotton ribbon. By adhering the little cluster of acorns in the center of the circle, it created a 3D effect while also embellishing the inside of the card.

To complete the card, the Crumb Cake envelope was lined with the same Designer Series Paper using the Envelope Liner Framelits.

I hope you enjoyed this little Fall note of hello.  I think my aunts will enjoy these cards, too.  Thanks so much for visiting.  I always welcome your comments and would be most happy to answer any questions.
