Hi friends! It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall acorn box and card with you today. What a fun way to say hello, thank you or happy fall to that special friend, co-worker or teacher!
Acorn Card and Box Supplies:
- Core’dinations Neutral Colors Core Cardstock
- Core’dinations Core Basics White
- 3D Acorn Box svg #33331 in Silhouette Store
- Acorn Card svg #50085 in Silhouette Store
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D acorn box and card from Core’dinations Neutrals cardstock and Core Basics white. These are the pieces that make up the box.
Step 2. Emboss the top of the acorn, the stem and the tan square piece that goes on the card using the Darice basket weave background embossing folder. The leaf is embossed with the Darice crackle embossing folder. After embossing, the sanding really brings out the texture. So cool!
This card is just three simple pieces! YAY to that!
Step 3. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside of the card and stamp it with a stamp from the Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set. I thought this sentiment I created was perfect for this card!
This is also perfect for any of your friends or family who are “nuts”. LOL!
The embossing and sanding of the Core’dinations cardstock really makes this simple card pop without overwhelming it.
Happy fall y’all! ~ Joy
I’m trying to create more cards to keep on hand for the occasions that pop up! One of the cards that I’m always needing are the ones for the men in my life. I find that using Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock always gives a simple design a more masculine look.
- Tim Holtz Kraft Core - No7, No11, No15, No18
- Sand It Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Big Shot
- Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder
- Simon Says Stamp die
- Winnie & Walter stamp
I’ve used the same embossing folder for each panel but some are embossed and some are debossed!
My other top cardmaking tip is to use a general sentiment such as ‘for you’ so the card can be used for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, Father’s Day, thank you etc.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Day! We are celebrating with a fabulous card from Mary Pat Siehl using tons of stamping, heat embossing and a touch of scoring for the frame around her card.
Tell a teacher how much you care with a fabulous Core’dinations card!

These A1 Glitter assorted cardbases make the CUTEST cards! The A1 size (3.475″x4.875) is just a tad smaller than the standard A2 size so it’s perfect for gift bags or a card you need in a hurry.
