Acorn Card with Art Philosophy Cricut and Dreamin' papers

Getting ready for my Open House was so much fun because it gave me a chance to start putting my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge through its paces.  I'm *still* finding new images on this thing that I didn't really see the first several times through the book.  One of the things I love is all the shaped card bases BUT I am also excited to play with making a regular shape INTO a shaped card base.

I took the acorn image and blew it up to 5.5" and cut two extras to mount them on for a card base.  To stick them together I simply scored a small line about .25" in on one edge and glued them together.  After I put the cap on I added some lines of Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel to add some pizzaz.  The tag is also on the cartridge - I just stamped the sentiment from the new "Harvest Happiness" set.

Super simple, super cute and it will fit into a regular sized envelope for mailing!  There are several shapes on the cartridge with matching little tags that include a negative of the image so you can make lots of different shaped cards like this!

Materials Used:
Paper:  Dreamin'
Inks:  Chocolate
