New Team Member Gifts - Acorny Thank You

Now that I have the Acorny Thank You stamp set and co-ordinating punch, I've gone slightly overboard and started making more formal welcome gifts for new team members.

I thought I'd share the most recent ones with you because they would make good small gifts for anyone.

I started with some Soft Suede cardstock and inked up the Woodgrain Embossing Folder with some Soft Suede ink using a Brayer before running it through the Big Shot.  It's great, because no two pieces look the same.

The wording on the card comes from the Welcome Words stamp set. I simply mounted the "Welcome" and "To the" on one block and "Team" on another block. The "Team" was stamped first in Cajun Craze and then I stamped the rest in Chocolate Chip.

The acorn was also stamped in Chocolate Chip (for the nut part) and Cajun Craze (for the cup part). There was no need to fussy cut because there is a co-ordinating punch to make life simple. The acorn on the card has a few strands of the Gold Metallic Thread tied in a box around the stalk.

The gifts are Post-It-Notes. Something every stamper should have if they want to do the Masking Technique, but they are good for marking pages in the Stampin' Up! catalogue too!! I'll be posting instructions on how to make these cute gifts early next month.

The whole thing is held shut by some Gold Foil Paper, this means the whole of the front slides off. I may have been a little too heavy with the Gold Metallic Thread on these but I've come to the conclusion that the more of it that you use, the easier it is to use.

Details of the products used for the above are as follows:

I hope my lovely new team members like these.

As always, please feel free to leave comments.
