From One Nut To Another......

Good morning!    It is a rainy day here and after having a stomach virus for a few days, I was feeling crafty!  I created this fall card...I know I should be making Christmas cards, but I just love the October card kit from Simon Says Stamp so much that I just keep creating with it!   So here is another Fall card that I made for the Scrappy Moms Stamp Terrific Tuesday Fall challenge.
 and here is the inside.... I couldn't resist this sentiment!

I used kraft cardstock and made a side fold A2 card base and rounded the two right corners using the 1/2 inch corner chomper and inked the edges.  I also did the same to the two mats, using Lawn Fawn 'into the woods' paper from the SSS card kit.  The sentiments, the squirrels and the leaves are from the Inky Antics 'Squirrel' stamp set and the little acorn inside the card is from the SSS 'Giving thanks' stamp set in the kit.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color....I need so much more practice with coloring, I am not happy with them, but I did have fun coloring and that's what counts....right?  I cut my own speach bubbles out around the sentiments.  I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists with a paint brush to paint the leaves (they have a great shimmer) in Chartreuse, Peach and Mustard and then just fussy cut everything out! Oh and I used some May Arts Natural Twine (also from the SSS kit) and I just love it, it is so thin and easy to work with!  I also used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight die for the tan background shape.
I think it is a cute Fall card and I had so much fun creating it!  Come on by the Scrappy Moms Stamp challenge and join in!
Have a great day!
