Nora’s acorn

Hello my friends!  How are you?  I hope you are having a few days of nice weather like we’ve had here lately!

Despite the beautiful weather though, my mojo kinda left for a bit.  I had a decision to make a few days ago and I felt I made the wrong choice so I was pretty mad at myself to say the least.  But last night I made this card and I really liked how it turned out so hopefully I’m getting a little less upset with myself.  LOL.

This is Swiss Pixie Nora from the ATS November release.  She is actually surrounded by snowflakes in the stamp but I cut her out, omitting the snowflakes, and colored her to fit in an Autumn card.   


The template for this acorn card was created by Kim Hughes and is available through the Paper Crafts magazine.  Her cute card was published in the October 2008 issue.  You can find the pattern here.  I just loved it when I saw it and I can’t believe it took me a whole year to try it!  LOL. 

The acorn cap and leaf were embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders…Tartan and Herringbone.  The Tartan folder can be found here at HSN.  I never ordered from them before, but I was pleased with their service.  And I purchased the Herringbone from ATS…you can find that one here.  I also used the Cuttlebug Squirrel die.  That might be retired??? …not sure.  But maybe you can do a search…it sure is cute!

I guess I have been in the mood for making shaped cards lately.  If you like them too, then be sure to check back on Friday…I was inspired by this card to create a different shaped card.  I made a quick pattern for it to share with you too.  🙂
