Did you get any fun crafting supplies for Christmas? I received a few items this year. The cute little squirrels on this card are from Lawn Fawn's Cheery Christmas stamp set. I stamped them out with Versafine Black ink and then colored them in with my new Prismacolor pencils. I have to say, I am LOVING these new pencils for coloring my stamped images. I am not that great at watercoloring, especially on regular cardstock. I dont like when the paper warps when you add water to it. These pencils blend great and work on my cheap cardstock.
I used the coordinating dies from the stamp set to die cut the squirrels and the little heart. Then, I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Circle Frame Dies to cut out the circle from some blue paper. I adhered that down to some floral paper that I also die cut, using the Stitched Journaling Card die from Lawn Fawn, as well.
All my papers I pulled from my scrap bin. I am trying my best to use up scraps! I then cut the background white paper on an angle with the Stitched Border dies, and ahdered it over some red polka dot paper that peeks out on the bottom right corner.
I then added the sentiment, the squirrels, and some white twine to the front, and placed the whole stitched journal die cut piece to the front of the card with foam adhesive.
Cute, easy card that has a Valentine's Day feel to it, without being too overly red and white.
Thanks for checking out my card today! I have been slacking on making YouTube videos lately with the business of the holidays, but I hope to get back into it soon!
