No, there is no need to check the banner across the top of the blog- it is Kathy Jo's blog. I know, I hardly ever color on my cards but this cute-as-a-button squirrel stamp by Northwoods Rubber Stamps called me out at the craft store and said "Buy me! I need a happy crafty home!" Really, how can you say no to this squirrel?
The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with pencils and gamsoled. It was die cut using Spellbinders' Classic Squares and gold trim applied. Next a piece of paper was die cut and distress inked using Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage and Vintage Photo. Gold applied again. Spellbinders Heart Squares was used to die cut patterned paper from My Mind's Eye's Heirloom paper pad. Two more sheets from the pad were cut to size and Vintage Photo applied along the edge. It was all mounted on a tent fold Kraft card. Finishing touch was Stickles applied to the flowers.
It felt strange to not add bling, ribbon, lace, and a big bow but this card will be given to my husband. I wanted it to be sweet but not girly. I think he will like it. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
