Nuts For You!
This cute squirrel card was made for Addicted to CAS's Challenge #64: Animal.
I started out with a panel of Classic Kraft cardstock that I put into a Darice embossing folder that impressed a tree into the paper.
My cute little nut lover was created with PTI's mini set called Nuts for You. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him in with Copics... he's a red squirrel!
My sentiment has been heat embossed in white on a band of dark chocolate cardstock which I also used to ground Mr. Nuts.
The idea for this card came from one I saw in the Papertrey Ink gallery... by one of their design team I'm pretty sure.
I'm happy with how this one came out... I love my little animal, the only thing I wish I'd done is remove the white from around the edges... it just sort of looks out of place.
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today... if you would like to see more of my cards be sure to follow my blog so you don't miss anything :)
