Acorny Thank You

CCMC379Oh…HAPPY THURSDAY everyone!  It’s a wonderful autumn day here and we have a GREAT color challenge for you on Create with Connie and Mary and it just says FALL to me!  The colors are Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.  Yep…it just says autumn to me.

As I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I saw the retrosketch challenge and I have to say…it really was PERFECT for the card I wanted to do.  The funny thing is that many of the pieces (not all but many) were ‘sitting on top of my desk’ as leftovers from other projects so was easy to finish up!

Here’s the details…

  • Hello Honey – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 11, run through the Woodland embossing folder, add strip of Mossy Meadow – 5/8 x 5 1/2.
  • Add gold foil doily to panel, trim off side and add panel using dimensionals.
  • Very Vanilla – 2″ circle, add to gold foil doily
  • Stamp long Vintage Leave using Early Espresso on Mossy Meadow, cut out and add to card front.
  • Stamp acorn bases solid and strip using Hello Honey; solid top using Mossy Meadow and grid using Soft Suede, punch everything out, layer and add ot card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Tie Gold Cording Trim into Very Vintage Button, add using glue dots.

Vintage Leaves

SUO133aHave you ever had a set that you just HAD to HAVE as SOON as it was available and then well…it sits, and it sits, and it sits?  I’m SURE that doesn’t happen to you!  LOL!!!

I just HAD to have this leaf set when it came out (and matching framelits of course)…that would be back the beginning of June.  And yep…this was the first time I used it.  Meanwhile I absolutely HATED Lighthearted Leaves in the Holiday Mini, bought it on a WHIM and used the heck out of it.  Go figure!  LOL!!!

But anyway…back to THIS card.  It’s Tuesday and it’s time for another SUO challenge.  This time our theme is Pocket Cards.  There are SOOOO many different ways to do pocket cards and you are going to get a nice variety from the SUO Challenge Design Team!  I decided to go pretty traditional with mine.  I’m sort of stuck on these colors (Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, So Saffron, Delightful Dijon) for a pretty ‘start of fall’ card!

Here’s what it looks like when it is open…

SUO133b

Pretty cool huh?  I like how I designed it for the leaves to hang out over the outside of the pocket!

Here’s the details…

  • Pear Pizzazz – 4 1/4 x 9 1/2, score at 5 1/2 and run the ‘short side’ through woodgrain embossing folder and fold.  Round the top two corners of the longer side.  NOTE:  I did not use adhesive on the side so my inside card could be bigger.
  • Mossy Meadow Dotted dsp (English Garden dsp) – 1 1/4 x 9. Wrap it around the pocket securing in the back.
  • Add piece of Gold Glitter Ribbon (4 1/4″).  Your pocket is done!
  • Pear Pizzazz – 4 x 5 1/4, round the top two corners.
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, round the top two corners, stamp greeting using Early Espresso, layer onto Pear Pizzazz and put in pocket.
  • Stamp leaves in Early Expresso – small and one long one Delightful Dijon, long one So Saffron, Oak Mossy Meadow, cut out using framelits, layer together and tie Gold Cording Trim around stems.  Add to card insert using dimensional to make it easy to ‘hang out’ over the pocket.
  • Add a couple Early Espresso Candy Dots to finish off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
