Acorns and Fall Leaves

Good Sunday morning.  I have another project made using the Tattered Lace Winter Florals set.  I used the same layout that I used for my Winter Florals Pine and Pinecones post but this time I used the acorn and fall leaves. The leaves and acorns are so much prettier in person but for some reason I had a really hard time getting the colors to photograph.

I cut all the images using cream cardstock and colored using a mini applicator and spiced marmalade, crushed olive, fired brick and vintage distress inks. I applied versa to each of them and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I wanted the color orange on the frame matting to match the leaves so I applied spiced marmalade ink to the edges with a mini applicator, applied versa and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I assembled the double matted frame and attached to the card base with mounting tape.

I attached the three larger leaves to the card base with glossy accents.  I added a smaller leaf in the center of the three leaves so the card base wouldn’t show through the opening between the acorns and the attached leaves.  I attached the acorns with double layers of mounting tape.  I hand cut a few twiggy branches to attach leaves to and to add another element of interest to the design.

Here’s a closer view of the arrangement.
