Cute Critters stamp set from My Favorite Things. This set has some adorable critters, but what really pushed me into buying it is that "nuts" sentiment. Big, bold, funky - what's not to love?!
So, I wanted to build a card around that, and really let the sentiment shine -- which meant something clean-and-simple.
I started by stamping out the acorn in brown ink and coloring it with my Copics. I kept the coloring very simple. Once I was finished, I carefully cut around it, leaving a small white border. I set it aside to work on the rest of the card.
I die-cut a piece of striped patterned paper with the stitched rectangle die. While I had my Bigshot out, I also die-cut a scallop rectangle from black Doodlebug Sprinkles vellum. I'm not sure if this vellum is available anymore, but I bought a whole bunch of it a few months ago, and I want to make sure I use it all up.
I stamped the sentiment straight onto the colored panel. This was a bit nerve-wracking, as it's a big stamp and it wouldn't be easy to fix a mistake. Luckily, it stamped just right (phew!). I adhered the vellum to a standard top-folding A2 card base (4¼ x 5½"), then adhered the patterned paper panel on top.
I added the acorn with foam squares for a bit of dimension, then added 3 sequins as embellishment.
Have a creative day!
