Acorn Card

I fell in love with the acorn card that Kim Hughes created in the latest PaperCrafts magazine (October 2008), and I just had to get the pattern and make my own. I traced the template onto Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa cardstocks and cut them out. When I looked around to decide what to stamp this with, I went to my Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounder stamps. The cocoa cs is stamped with Tiled Scallops backgrounder, and the caramel is stamped with Fine Houndstooth Scrapblock. I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink to "age" it a bit.

The little tag is stamped with "Enjoy" from Baked with Love (Cornish Heritage Farms) and tied on with some twine that I got from Ellen Hutson's store. This is such a cute little card to give with a pecan pie or some cookies with some nuts in them. Hmmmm...... I think I need to go bake something now. :-)
