Aw, Nuts - Day 3

October 6, 2020

Hi there!

Elena here with a cozy fall card featuring the new Aw, Nuts stamp set:

I just love the little squirrel in his acorn home, and wanted him to be the center of attention! A great way to push all the focus on him was to use the Ray background die. I cut it out of kraft paper, and then used an ink blender to darken the area around the opening. I also added texture and more interest by splattering darker brown and white paint onto the die-cut layer before adding in the images. 

After working on the base layer, I added in the squirrel onto foam squares, nestling him behind some brightly colored mushrooms. Even though the card is dark and earthy in tone, I wanted to add in some pops of color - the mushrooms, the mug, the leaf, and his scarf all break up the brown tones that are prominent on this card.

For a final touch, I added the bird, from Woodland Scene Builder, and used a white gel pen to draw in a little dotted path.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
