Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Ours was fairly quiet due to all the rain, so after stamp camp on Saturday, we did a whole lot of nothing. I didn't even have the energy to craft! Shocking, I know! I tried. I went into my craft room and sat there waiting for the creativeness to take over, but nothing. Nada. The three cards I made went in the trash, I spilled an ink refill bottle and jabbed my index finger with the paper piercer. I muttered under my breath a few times and called it quits. It's okay, it happens. These are the times when I know it's better to just walk away.
Today's card was actually one of the cards I made on Saturday and plucked out of the trash Sunday night thinking it wasn't really all that bad. I neither particularly love it, nor hate it, but in an effort of full transparency on this blog, I'm going to begin sharing more of that process with you. Tomorrow I'll be discussing more about my creative struggles.
The base of this slimline ( 8 1/2" x 3 1/2") card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. The first 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" layer is a sheet of gold foil woodgrain pattern paper I pulled from my scrap pile. Next I stamped each acorn in a series of colors - Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. I die cut the acorns using the coordinating Happy Harvest acorn die. I cut an acorn top for each from Crumb Cake cardstock. I assembled the acorns onto the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great week!
