Nuts About Squirrels Friend Card and Classic Cloche!

Yesterday for my weekly Facebook Live, I showed two different stamp sets – with very different looks!  First, I used the Nuts About Squirrel Stamp Set has won my heart over!  These squirrels are just too cute!  Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set From Stampin' Up! 156475 Cards by Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

Here’s what Stampin’ Up! has to say about this stamp set:  Are you nuts about stamping? We are, too! And it’s easy to go nuts with the Nuts about Squirrels Stamp Set. This set features two cheeky squirrels that will look adorable scampering across any of your projects. Create a scene using the acorns, leaves, and tree branch. Mix and match the greetings with the images to create cards for birthdays, get well, and thinking of you.

My card design featured a fun fold – with a pull out feature.  For the card base, you will need two sheets of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Granny Apple Green.  You will need to use a paper trimmer to “angle” the edges – you can watch my FB Live recording to see how I did it.

After cutting and attaching the two panels of Granny Green cardstock together, I then decorated the two triangles.  I used the wonderful Cork Specialty Paper – if you haven’t used it yet, you need to get some in your hands ASAP!   You can stamp on it for a rustic look – as I did.  I used a pretty pattern from the Beauty of the Earth DSP for the other triangle.

Here’s the card with the insert positioned in the card base.

The next card I created features the Christmas Cloche bundle.  It is a darling set – and you know I love anything with birds!  I wanted to make a card with this bundle as I am featuring it in my October Class to Go – this is an additional idea to the cards in my class.  Registration for my class closes this Friday, Oct. 15th.  You can contact me via email for a registration link.  Don’t miss out on this great class!  The bundle is so versatile – it can be used to create Shaker Cards as well!

For this card, I used a card base of Soft Succulent, and then used a small strip of Basic White cardstock and the Cloche dies to crop out the cloche.   I used the Wintry Embossing folder to add a snowy/wintry look.  I used the Cloche dies to crop the trees as well as the birds and the snowy landscape placed inside the cloche.  The thin panel of Crumb Cake cardstock is also cropped from the Cloche dies.

I finished the card with a stamped greeting and a bit of Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack.
