Getting Sketchy

Today's card is a cute little square card using this week's sketch challenge over on Papercraft Planet. I must say, this sketch almost beat me. I printed it out because I really liked the sample card, but then once I got to my desk, I realized that the front panel was supposed to be a sentiment. I had my heart set on using the pumpkin trio from Tall Oaks, but had to settle for the sentiment and cute little acorns.

I pulled out some Kraft paper and stamped the acorn in Chocolate Chip Kraft ink up and down the two sides of the square, then embossed with Clear EP. I colored them in with Copic markers and then stamped over the panel with the Linen background from SU! in Close to Cocoa. I finished the background by sponging the edges with Close to Cocoa.

For the sentiment panel, I cut and embossed a long rectangle with Nestabilities, then stamped the sentiment and embossed. I replaced the Nestabilities die over the panel, so it masked off the edges and I stamped the Linen background over the sentiment. The vertical strip of paper is from Daisy D's and I pierced holes down both sides. Everything is matted with chocolate chip. For the embellishment, I stamped, colored and cut out an acorn shape, then layered on top of two Prima velvety leaves. The card base is so saffron, and is 4.25" square.
