Acorny Thank You

AcornySo are you all LOVIN’ the Holiday Mini?  I know that I am!  And I have a confession to make…bought WAAAY too much ‘stuff’ already and haven’t gotten everything I wanted…YET!!!

I love this great little acorn set and matching punch.  I’ve seen some great things being made for it.  I was needing to make a card for my stamp group and well I sort or waited until the last minute to come up with an idea (been SUPER busy at school!).  Anywho…I had to come up with an idea QUICK and CAS (clean and simple) ALWAYS fits that bill!  I wanted to show add the loopy cord behind a image…my new FAV thing to do!

Here’s the VERY easy details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Old Olive – 1/2 x 5 1/2, cut two, add to card base
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, add to card base using dimensionals
  • Stamp bottom of acorn using Old Olive on Very Vanilla and top using Early Espresso, punch out and layer.
  • Turn over, add adhesive then do your ‘loopies’ using the Gold Cording Trim (LOVE!!!), add to card front
  • Stamp thankful banner using Cajun Craze, cut out and add using dimensionals

How super simple is that!  See I told you it was easy.

  • Very Vanilla – 2 1/4 x 3.  Round corners, run through the Softly Falling Embossing folder then cut into 4 pieces (each piece 1 1/8 x 1 1/2.  Add to card front.
