The card base was stamped along the edge with a leaf design. A panel of Gumball Green cardstock was adhered and then another panel of DSP was adhered. On a panel of Whisper White the various leaf designs were stamped. This stamp set only has two matching leaf dies so the others were fussy cut.
I drew an acorn freehand, including the crisscross design for the acorn cap, added a computer generated sentiment, fussy cut the shape and sponged the acorn to give it a little definition. Some of the cut shapes were adhered to the card front and some were popped up with Dimensionals. The inside of the card was lined with a piece of white cardstock and stamped with a few leaves, using a stamping off (generation stamping) technique.
