So cute, this felt acorn from Festive Friday - it immediately appealed to me and I wanted to play....
But it wasn't as easy as I thought. I wanted to use felt, to get that cozy warm feeling from the inspiration picture, but I did not like any one of my two felt cards I made. So I went with what comes easier to me - stamping.....I like this card.
The windows are cut with the Papertrey Take Tree die, the stamps are Hero Arts Four Framed Snowflakes, the sentiment is by Magenta. I also cut a thin strip of metal foil and added some Stickles.
I will show you my other attempts....maybe I shouldn't.....
The stamps and die cuts are Prickley Pear,the sentiment is Hero Arts - Decorate your Holidays. Somehow there is something missing on this card - any suggestions?
The second card looks better here than in real life. The stamps and die cut are from the Hero Arts/Sizzix Merry Christmas Tree set. For both cards I used the Papertrey woodgrain embossing plate as backgound.
I am also submitting those cards to the CNHC challenge - Anything Christmas
