I love this card! I made it to my friend Laura, for her birthday.
I had no time to make something from scratch and I had this little guy ready to go in one of my boxes. I cut him when I first got the Give A Hoot cart and thought that he is the cutest Buddy over there. I cut few acorns alons with him and used them as well on the card as you can see in the pictures below.
The pattern paper is from K&Company Sweet Nectar stack - I love this stack, it's so colorful and happy, very springy. The colorful ribbon was found hiding in my ribbons box. Stamps - Make a wish - Studio G, Thinking Of You - Inkadinkado #98780.
SO, one acorn was used as a stamp - which I thought was a great Idea, as my friend Laura, is working at the post Office - where I visit daily.
Inside the card I embellished with another acorn, stamped Happy Birthday and wrought my sentiment. Easy...
