Day 3 of Mini Challenge – N is for Nuts

This was a quick card for my post to The Alphabet Game on for the letter N and the third day in my challenge to myself to make five cards from the Autumn Days stamp set from the most recent Simply Cards and Papercrafts magazine. I had recently gotten two slimline panel circle dies that I also wanted to try out. I grabbed the darkest, what I thought was brown embossing powder from my stash, but when I heated it up it was this lovely smooth gold. (I need to write Craftstash to find out what brand of powder this is, as I highly recommend it for its smooth detail.)

After heat embossing the acorns, I used a brown watercolor pencil waterbrush to color them.

I cut the center circle out of the card base and placed the stamped/embossed sentiment on the inside. This will make a lovely Thanksgiving card with plenty of space inside for a personal note.

The envelope is stamped with brown ink on its back flap.
