Stampin' Up! Acorny Thank You Gets Fancy

Hi Stamping Friends!!

As some of you may know, my husband and I are church planters in Oceanside, CA. Each month our family is blessed by others to continue on this path God has brought us to. Each month we like to send thank you cards to all of our supporters.

This month I based our card on one I did for my Tulare County card class. I made 24 of these and then ended up needing to make a dozen more. Having to make more thank you cards is always a good problem to have. :)

Stamps: Acorny Thank You, B.Y.O.P. (sentiment)
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Tip Top Taupe, Gold Glimmer, Newsprint DSP, Retired DSP
Accessories: Woodland EF, Leaflets Framelits, Acorn Builder Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch

Sometimes when I create a card, I want to see if I can fancy it up a bit. Here is my "fancier" acorn card:

For the fancier version I added a second card front layer, a second acorn, some Burlap Ribbon and tied it all up with some Linen Thread. I love all the extra textures on this card. But I sure wouldn't want to make 36 of them!! That's why sometimes simpler is best.

Here is a "picture list" of the steps I used to make 36 of the "simple" acorn thank you card:

Cut, stamp, emboss, and punch all your card elements.

Glue down embossed card fronts.

Attach DSP strip.

Attach circles with Dimensionals.

Attach Newsprint leaves with glue.

Attach acorns with Dimensionals.

Slow and steady wins the race!!

After you've done it enough times, making 36 cards is pretty easy. Bump that number up to 100 and then it gets kind of time consuming. ;)
