    I used Serendipity's AUTUMN die on my card.

    (and glued them together)
    and once in green so I could cut off the 
    leaves and glue them on top.

    inked the edges and popped it up over the top of the acorn.

    I used Serendipity's CREATE die on my card.

    I started out cutting the paper to show the images 
    I wanted from the 12x12 paper. Then I taped down and
