It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge.
NUTS ABOUT SQUIRRELS
Looking thru my current stamps, I saw the leaves and acorns in the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set that I thought would be perfect for this Inspiration Challenge!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Succulent cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Soft Suede cardstock is embossed with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder and added to the front.
- A 1-1/4 x 4-1/4 strip of Lights Aglow Designer Paper was added across the front.
- Half the tag was cut from Basic White cardstock with the Celebration Tags Die.
- Using the leaves in Nuts about Squirrels stamp set, the bottom of the tag was stamped off with Soft Succulent and Soft Suede inks, then the veins full strength inks.
- The greeting from Nuts About Squirrels was stamped with Soft Succulent Ink in the upper right corner.
- Two acorns and the squirrel were stamped with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks on scrap Basic White cardstock and hand-cut, then added to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Gold Shimmer Ribbon was placed thru the tag hole, then tied with Linen Thread in a bow. The tag was added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
