A Corny Hello

Only one more day and the Holiday Catalog will be "live"!  Are  you making your list?  Checking it twice?  (Oh, sorry, wrong season, especially for today's card!).

When I attended Convention in July, I won the adorable stamp set, Acorny Thank You during a Prize Patrol.  This very fall-appropriate set has a matching punch, which was first on my list to order.  I finally got around to playing with it...see the results:

This was a very easy card, but I love the results.

I started with a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, 4-1/4" x 11", folded at 5-1/2".  I ran a piece of Early Espresso (4" x 5-1/4") through my Big Shot with my Woodgrain Embossing Folder, and adhered it to my base.

The acorns were stamped in Early Espresso and Always Artichoke and the little caps were stamped using Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe inks.  These pieces were punched with the Acorn Builder Punch (I love it when things coordinate!) and the caps were popped up on the acorn with Dimensionals.

A strip of 5/8" Chevron Ribbon and another of 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon (cut in half) were adhered to my card (using Tear and Tape Adhesive) and the acorns were popped up.  I frayed some of the Burlap Ribbon, and used a thread to make a little bow, adhered to the acorn with a Mini Glue Dot.

"Hello" was cut with the Big Shot and the Greetings Thinlits and Whisper White cardstock; this is adhered to the front with Two-Way Glue.

And that's all there is to it!  So cute...and this corny little set and punch can be yours tomorrow!

All items can be ordered here.
