Oh boy did I need to make this card. Last weeks crafting frenzy really put me in a creative slump. Every time I even thought about sitting down and making a card I cringed. These cutie patootie acorns just kept calling my name though. After several design revisions I came up with this, and yes I qualify for the first part of the sentiment. LOL
There She Goes has been showcasing some of the older sets again this week. For my card I used the two different sizes of acorns from the "Pumpkins on the Vine" set. Make sure you pop over to the blog and check out all the new creations from my fellow Trendsetters.
I know I have mentioned several times when commenting on your cards that I really need to use more washi tape. Well, here it is. Do you see it? Huh? hee hee While making a quick trip to Target the other day I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to peruse their crafty aisle. They had several Halloween themed items out including some American Crafts washi tape. One package of two rolls included a roll with bats on it and the awesome woodgrain that I've used on this card. Yep, that background panel is two rows of washi tape on some cardstock. Super cute huh!
The papers and cute little sentiment are all from last years fabulous Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection. I couldn't believe how perfect the little nut saying was for my card.
I even drug out several Distress inks and created those fun oak leaves in the foreground. I had intended to use them on my card but they didn't make the final cut. Here are the Copic colors in case you're interested.
