House-Mouse Designs® Acorn Cap by Kathi F. Rerek



  1. Fold a 8.5" x 5.5" piece of rust cardstock in half to form an A2 card.
  2. Using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamp Acorn Cap onto Neenah cardstock.
  3. Color the scene with Copic markers.
  4. Die-cut the image panel and rust cardstock with a pair of the Fitted Frames B Die Cut set. 
  5. Mat the image panel die-cut onto the rust die-cut.
  6. Smoosh Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink onto a craft mat, spritz with water, and drag a piece of 6" x 8" Mixed Media paper through the puddle. Spritz with water, then heat set.
  7. Repeat step #2 with the other colors of Distress Oxide inks until you are happy with the coverage. Heat set thoroughly, then heat set it again to make sure that the piece is bone dry. 
  8. Using Jet Black Archival ink, stamp the Decor Cling Leaves onto the Mixed Media paper.
  9. Trim the stamped, Distress Oxided paper to 4" x 5.25" to create the card front. Reserve the excess for another project!

  12. Trim the die-cut sentiment strip to 4" wide.
  13. Adhere the image panel and the sentiment strip to the card front.
  14. Adhere the card front to the card.
