BoBunny Love Bandit - Gotta love nuts!

It's not unusual for me to be inspired by the designs found right in the BoBunny products. Obviously the inspiration for this acorn-shaped card are the acorns found in BoB's adorable Love Bandit collection!

Here are some ideas...
• Acorn cap shape was also cut from cardboard, and used under patterned paper to create dimension.

• Cut shapes in cardstock stickers out from the finished design (often built into a rectangle or circle shape), and use as a page embellishment

• Apply -ons to cardstock, cut out shape and pop with foam adhesive to create dimensional accent

• For shaped cards, create front shape and trace outline onto solid cardstock to create back (or inside) of card. Hole punch along top and stitch together with embroidery floss. In this example the card shape in whole was cut from pink patterned paper, holes punched and floss attached to card backing. The cardboard and brown PP hide the stitching from the front.

Cardstock: BoBunny Double Dot Cardstock Frost, Coffee Dot
Patterned Paper, Cardstock Stickers, buttons and bling, rub-ons “u stole my heart”: BoBunny Love Bandit
Glitter: Ranger Stickles
Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink
Thread: Coats and Clark
