Autumn Tree Focused Card with Squirrel Friends

September 12, 2022 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Monday!

Sharing a card today featuring the Autumn Tree Dies paired with a couple of adorable squirrels from the Squirrel Friends stamp set. The sentiments in this stamp set make for some really cute love themed cards!

To create my card, I started by die-cutting a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock using a Stitched Rectangle die. I lightly inked the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the top half of the piece and Antique Linen on the bottom half. I added a die-cut cloud using the Tropical Trees Backdrop Die. Setting this piece aside, I die-cut another piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle die and stamped the fence portion of a Fall Scenes stamp 1 1/2″ from the bottom. I colored the stamped image with Copics, inked the grass below with Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress inks and heat embossed the sentiment. I then used the coordinating dies to the Fall Scenes stamps to die-cut along the fence line and adhered this piece to the bottom of the inked sky cardstock piece.


Next, I die-cut 2 trees and leaves using the Autumn Tree Dies and colored them with Copics. I adhered one to each side of the cardstock piece overlapping the edges and used precision tip scissors to cut carefully along the edges of the cardstock. I stamped and colored the 2 adorable little squirrels and acorns from the Squirrel Friends stamps with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.


For the hearts above my amorous little squirrel, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Saltwater Taffy Distress ink and die-cut the piece using the Bursting Hearts die. This gave me a bunch of different sized hearts that I heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a little shine. I adhered the panel to a light gray A2 card front.


I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
