Fall Acorn card

Another Fall card, this one is for my Awesome Hubby!
I used Kraft card stock for the front layer adhered to a 110 lb. white card stock card base for a 4.25 by 5.5 portrait card.  The top layer of orange I ran through my Cuttlebug to emboss with the Darice Fall leaves swirl folder... Love that folder for fall!  At the bottom I used some fall plaid pattern paper from my stash.  The center strip is a Green burlap wired ribbon.  The acorn with leaf is cut from Cricut Autumn Celebrations cartridge.  I embossed the top acorn cap with CB simply squared folder.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I added a bow of Rafia around the stem and I die cut the 3 brown swirls from my new Spellbinders set - Jewel Treasures.
For the inside I used some paper scraps from the front and cut 3 more brown swirls to embellish.  The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is stamped from Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The bottom acorn leaf swirl is from a stamp set in my stash that I got in a cardmaker kit years ago, sorry I don't know the name.

For the Envelope I used my WRMK 123 Punch Board and some Fall Pumpkin Pattern Paper.
