Nuts about you card!

Today I have an interactive card using the adorable "Oh Nuts" stamp set and my favorite background stamp set "Woodgrain Background".  This interactive card allows the recipient to put acorns in the squirrels home in the tree; a hidden pull tab allows the acorns come out the bottom.

Briefly:

  1.  I stamped the Woodgrain Background several times with Memento in Rich Cocoa on Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I then blended Distress Oxide Ink in ground espresso over the entire panel.  I fussy cut out the spindle shaped area and adhered it to another cardstock panel behind the tree.  I also did ink blending on this same cardstock piece that had the adhered piece with distress oxide ink in rusty hinge and wild honey to create a fall early sun rising.
  2. I adhered foam to the back of the tree trunk and created a slot for the acorns.  Another foam piece (1/2 inch by 3 inches long) blocked the lower part of the slot; when you slide this piece back and forth it releases any accumulated acorns.
  3. I stamped all the images for the wreath and the squirrel & acorns with Memento black ink on Neenah solar white cardstock.  All the images were cut with a Brother Scan n' Cut 2 and copic colored.
  4. Final touches included die cutting some grass, adding some sequins and heat embossed a sentiment with white embossing powder.
