I have always wanted to make a pop art card, but I just couldn’t find the perfect element to work with. Enter the “acorny” acorn and I think I found the perfect subject. Pop art is a license for me to have fun and put bright colors together that I would normally be too timid to use.
All the supplies you’ll need for this project are available for purchase HERE! Earn a FREE tutorial from me when you place a $15 order in my Stampin’ Up Store (see the choices HERE).
To create this card I cut a 4-7/8″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Basic Black Card Stock. I then cut 1-3/4″ x 1-5/8″ pieces in Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Wild Wasabi. I adhered the smaller pieces to the Basic Black piece.
Next I punched out the following acorn combinations and adhere them to the swatches.
- Wild Wasabi – Night of Navy
- Daffodil Delight – Melon Mambo
- Blushing Bride – Real Red
- Marina Mist – Perfect Plum
- So Saffron – Pumpkin Pie
Finally I stamped “nuts about you” with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Card Stock and adhered it to the remaining swatch with Dimensionals. Then I adhered this piece to a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Basic Black Card Base.

I've got a pop art piece I did I'd love to show you! I woke up with it in my head one day, thankfully a weekend so I was able to go straight to my crafting table and start! 🙂 I couldn't find an email for you.
