Stampin' Up Square Pillow Box - Acorn Builder Punch Cont'd

O.K.  Back to the regularly scheduled program - Stampin' Up's Square Pillow Boxes and the Acorn Builder Punch.  Last Friday, I posted the half size Pillow Box shown in the picture  below:

Today, I wanted to show you the four 3"x3" cards and envelopes that are inside the half size Pillow Box.  Below is a picture of the whole ensemble that I designed:

I LOVE those acorns and they're so cute and so much fun to make with Stampin' Up's Acorn Builder Punch!!!  I popped the scalloped circles and top acorns up with Stampin' Dimensionals to give some height.  I even added little dots with a white Signo gel pen to each scallop on the scalloped circles.

This is a great way to show off Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper too.  I made two acorns on each card using each corresponding side of the double sided paper so you can see each design that comes in the package of the Into the Woods DSP from Stampin' Up.  I ended up using every design in the package on my cards.

Here are the four cards:

In the picture below, I tried to capture the dimension of the scalloped circles and the acorns on the front of the cards:

Below is a picture of the half size carrier.  Just Darling and so easy to make!!!  I showed how to make the half size pillow boxes on my Friday blog post here:

And, the inside of the 3"x3" cards:

The stamp set is called Acorny Thank You by Stampin' Up.  I used every stamp in the set to make my ensemble.  Such a fun set and the name just cracks me up!!!

And, of course, I had to ink up the envelopes too!!!

I stamped the little leaves using Stampin' Up's A Little Something Stamp Set.  

The little acorn is from Stampin' Up's September Paper Pumpkin Kit.  You have to be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber in order to get their monthly kits.  Please come back tomorrow and I will show you what I created using this months Paper Pumpkin Kit.
