I decided to make a Thanksgiving card to share with all of you. I am so thankful for your support and sweet comments - they mean the world to me!
Anita Houston, who inspired me to make these glittery acorns similar to ones she made, that were inspired by my pearl acorns (make sense?!). I wanted to do some like that, and had found the most adorable little acorns, but didn't have the right size pearls. So, instead of removing the nuts, I just covered them with Ranger's Glue 'n Seal and coated them with glitter! They are adhered to the center of an Ornate Plate with Beacon's 3-in-1 glue. Love that stuff for gluing down awkward things like this. I tied the acorn stem with a little piece of idea-ology Paper Twine.
The background is red Kraft Core'dinations that's been embossed with the new Textured Leaves Texture Fade and sanded. Behind the Ornate Plate, I added a frame made from kraft cardstock and rust Kraft Core'dinations that was cut using Karen's Fancy Frames die.
Sometimes with pop-ups, you just have to see them in action. Here is a quick little video I shot so you can see how the Raising Platform mechanism works. So fun! I am excited to use this for Christmas cards too.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
