Hello fellow crafters!!! Welcome back to my little spot on the web. Here is this week's design team project for Regina at The Cutting Cafe! This week we are working with a Fall theme.
We had the choice of working with Acorn Shaped Card, Fall Word Shaped Card and Welcome Fall Printable Stamp Set. I choose to use a mix of the Acorn Shaped Card and Welcome Fall Printable Stamp Set.
My boyfriend helped me SOOO much with the inspiration for this card!! He thought it would be a great idea to add a little squirrel at the bottom of the card holding it as if he hit the jackpot! He also found a great cartoon online that had this really funny saying....so I added it as well!! It turned out SOOOO cute!!!
The three leaves layered on the top are from the Welcome Fall Printable Stamp Set. I was looking for the perfect paper for the top of the acorn and I found this awesome cork paper at Michael's. I embossed it and added a little ink to the embossing folder to give it some depth. The cork really soaked up the ink so it's a bit hard to tell. I also used Ranger Liquid Pearls oh the top of the acorn.
For the inside of the card I used a sentiment from Welcome Fall Printable Stamp Set as well as the two small acorn from the set.
I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the shape for the sentiment and inked the edges.
I really hope you like my boyfriend's and my take on the Acorn Shaped Card!! I think Regina may want him on the design team next....he's good!!! Hehe.
Btw, it's my birthday on Thursday and he got me the Pazzles machine!!! WOO HOO!!! He's already talking about making me a birthday card with the machine while I'm away for work! HAH!!! I can't wait to see it!!! All I have to say is it better not be better then my cards or he might get my spot on the design team!!! Hehe
