Fall Thanks

With fall almost here on the calendar, I felt like doing some fallish colors. This card could be used for Thanksgiving or just to thank someone for a special deed or time. I'm not real big on Halloween and may or may not do any Halloween cards. I do like the oranges, reds, and browns of fall though and enjoy doing things with them. Hope you enjoy this card.
Materials needed:
Whisper White cardstock
Tangerine Tango cardstock 2 1/2 x 3 1/2"
Kraft cardstock
Tangerine Tango ink pad
Crumb Cake ink pad
Truly Grateful stamp set (#131733)
Curly Label punch (#119851)
Extra large Oval punch (#119859)
Modern Label punch (#119849)
Sponge Dauber (#102892)
Chevron Embossing Folder (#127749)
Brayer (#102395)
VersaMark ink pad (#102283)
Heat & Stick Powder (#100625)
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (#102023)
Hung Up Cute Clips (#129389)
Candy Dots Brad Bases (#132293)
Brights Candy Dots (#130931)
Heat Tool
Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

1. Use your Brayer to ink the embossing folder with Tangerine Tango ink to do the Color and Emboss technique. (Click the link for instructions for this technique.) Emboss the white cardstock with the Chevron embossing folder and your Big Shot.
2. Rub the VersaMark ink pad on top of the Chevron embossed cardstock so that the ink sticks to just the raised lines on the right half of the card. Using a piece of paper to catch the excess powder, sprinkle Heat & Stick powder over the card. Shake off excess. Pour excess from paper back into Heat & Stick container. Use your heat tool to heat the powder just until it get shiny.
3. Using paper again, sprinkle the Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the Heat & Stick powder. Tap off excess. Pour excess glitter back in glitter container. Use your heat tool on the glitter to set it.
4. Stamp the wood grain pattern with Crumb Cake ink onto white cardstock. Stamp the acorn with Tangerine Tango ink and the "Thankful for..." greeting with Tangerine Tango ink. Cut out the rectangle around the wood grain pattern. Cut out the acorn. 
5. Use the Modern Label punch to cut out the greeting. Dab Tangerine Tango ink on a sponge dauber and ink the edges of the Modern Label punch.
6. Punch out an Extra Large Oval and a Curly Label from Kraft cardstock. 
7.  Adhere the wood grain pattern onto the Tangerine Tango cardstock rectangle. Adhere the acorn on top of the Kraft oval. Place a Stampin' Dimensional under the Kraft oval. Place this in the center of the wood grain stamped card stock. 
8. Place a clip arrow on the bottom of the wood grain piece. Add dimensionals to the back of the Tangerine Tango and place on the left hand side of the card slightly overlapping the glittered area.
9. Adhere the Curly Label punched piece to the right hand side and place the greeting over it. Attach the greeting with brads.
10. Adhere the card front to the card base and you are finished.
Have fun with the glitter, dimension and clips on this card!
