Today’s card features a layering stamp set from LDRS Creative called, “Grateful for You.” There is a cute little critter holding an acorn in this stamp set. I received it in the Scrapbook and Cards Today sampler subscription, which comes monthly and includes samples of many goodies from various companies in the industry. It’s a great way to add to your supplies or build them up if you are just getting started with papercrafting, cardmaking, or scrapbooking.
The patterned paper you see above came in the SCT Sampler for October 2022. You can purchase it elsewhere, such as Scrapbook.com or Amazon.com. (I am an affiliate at these two locations and will receive a small portion from any sale made using these links – at no extra cost to you). It is from the “Welcome Fall” collection by Carta Bella. They always have beautiful, quality paper with a gorgeous texture to them. The photo above doesn’t do them justice. Watch the video below to get a better view.
I started by cutting the leaf paper to an A2 size, 4.25″ x 5.5″. I adhered that to my cardbase of the same size made from Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Cardstock 100lb weight. The polka dot pattern paper was cut to 3.25″ x 4.5″ and the white cardstock with the squirrel stamped on it is 2.75″ x 4 and 1/8″.
I used my We R Memory Keepers stamping platform to stamp the squirrel. This tool prevents uneven alignment when double or triple stamping an image.
I decided to frame the squirrel by using some Crystal Nuvo drops in the color “Copper Penny” and some strips of pattern paper to go all the way around him.
All in all, a simple card. Of course you can spruce it up by adding more embellishments or even using more shading on the squirrel by using more than one brown color to give him some life and dimension. Be sure to watch the video below to see the card being made.
