When I first laid eyes on these squirrels, I could hardly stand it! I decided I wanted to color the squirrel die cuts and the stamped tree myself, rather than using colored paper. I cut the squirrels out of white cardstock and applied Distress Inks to get the desired colors. Then I stamped the tree trunks with brown ink, fussy cut them and then also applied Distress Inks to them. I popped up the squirrels with dimensional adhesive so they look like they are perched and climbing as squirrels would–very 3-D. It is tradition for me to make a squirrel birthday card for a friend, so this is what I came up with. Thanks for visiting today.
