Inkadinkado Woodblock Flower Rubber Stamp

Handmade Hello Squirrel Card

Handmade Hello Squirrel Card

Handmade Hello Squirrel Card


I started with an A2 kraft cardstock card base. I stamped all over the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo with my super cute flower rubber stamp. I cut a 3 x 4 1/2″ piece of basicgrey archaic-prehistoric pattern paper and attached it in the middle of the card. The squirrel is cut from Give a Hoot at 2 1/2″. His base layer is basicgrey archaic-boulder pattern paper, and the top layer is kraft card stock inked up with Vintage Photo Distress ink. His cute little top hat is cut from the Billionaire Lite Cartridge at 1/2″ in black and the band is cut from boulder. I used some boulder pattern paper for the background to my embossed frame. After I attached the squirrel, I used some pop dots to attach the focal image to the card. I used the archiac alphabet stickers to spell out the greeting. Hello is spelled out in all capital letters, and friend is spelled out in all lower case letters. I hope you like this card.
