Acorny Thankyou... Dropping in to Say Hi

Oh my gosh.... I just love this card!!

I found it on Pinterest when I was preparing for our All-Occasion Card Class last month and knew we'd be making it at class!!

Thanks so much to Windy Ellard for her inspiration on this card!!

We start our card with a Whisper White card base, then added a layer of Pool Party card stock, followed by another layer of Whisper White card stock.

Next, we stamped the water splotches using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (and Pool Party ink) and the leaves using the For All Things Stamp Set (and Mossy Meadow ink).

For All Things Stamp Set  wood-mount  135152  $25.00
For All Things Stamp Set  clear-mount  135155  $18.00

Next, we stamped the acorn tops and acorns in Pool Party and Early Espresso ink (using the awesome, new stamp set - Acorny Thank You!).

This is such a cute set - I can't believe I resisted buying it at first!!

The acorns are easily die-cut using the coordinating Acorn Builder Punch.  You can purchase the stamp set and punch separately (but why would you want to do that??), or save 15% when you buy them in the bundle.

Finally, we added a couple of Rhinestones to our acorns and stamped "Dropping in to say Hi" (also from the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set).
