I love saying Happy Fall Y'all! Today's Bloggers Challenge is to create a fall card! I used the acorn designed by Ellen Kemper from Stampin' Up!'s Ornament Punch, but came up with a new card design to use it on for my Punch Class last month! I've now shown my punch class members two ways to use that Ornament Punch other than with the Delightful Decorations ornament stamp set…if they haven't bought it by now…they'd better get it soon! lol! I have a cute Valentine/Anniversary idea that I'm SURE they would love!
For this card, I started with a base of Soft Suede cardstock. The Sahara Sand layer I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate to get the grid look. I added a strip of stripe paper from Autumn Traditions Designer Paper. I used the Modern Tag Punch with More Mustard cardstock and the Happy Thanksgiving greeting from Teeny, Tiny Wishes. For the acorn, I used the Ornament Punch from Sahara Sand, the Wide Oval punch and Large Oval punch from Soft Suede, the free-hand cut a piece of Soft Suede for the stem. I used the Sanded Background in Soft Suede on the acorn cap for some dimension and sponged around the acorn body with Soft Suede ink.
I mounted the Acorn with dimensionals on the More Mustard cardstock and layered it on Ruby Red. As a final touch, I added a bit of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, folded in half, in the upper right corner, placed under the layers. A very simple card, but easy to duplicate for the Thanksgiving holiday!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Looking forward to the Ohio State/Iowa game on Saturday! Go Bucks!
