Go Nuts... Acorn Card

 Here is another shaped card for the challenge at Simply Less is Moore.   You could say I am going NUTS with this challenge!  This card is a set of acorns and the sentiment in side says "Go NUTS... On Your Birthday!"  I cut the acorns out of brown cardstock and cut the acorn caps from a very light green and white checked patterned paper. I chose the checked paper because the green color was similar to the color in the leaves that I wanted to use.  Since I already had oak leaf patterned paper, I cut the leaves directly from the paper. The leaves had a reddish-brown outline and vein pattern, so I outlined the caps and the edge of the acorns with a brown colored pencil to help pull the card together.   For the inside of the card I cut acorns from the same green checked pattern paper and used my computer to print "Go Nuts...." on the left acorn and "On Your Birthday" on the right acorn.

Thank you for visiting!
