Let’s Go Nuts!

I couldn’t wait to make this birthday card for my son! He turned 22 on Friday, but he still likes cute animals! Plus he will forever be known as “Chipmunk” from his YMCA camp counselor days, so all things squirrely seem appropriate!

The fun thing about this card is the way that by using this die to cut the trees, you can hide surprises behind the flaps (in this case, more squirrels!), to make it interactive.

I used the Lawn Fawn Let’s Go Nuts stamp and die sets and the Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop die.

I did some simple ink blending with Distress inks for the background prior to adhering the trees. I used Broken China for the top of the sky and then blended Pine Needles, Brushed Corduroy and Broken China at the bottom. The sentiment is Squeezed Lemonade and Fired Brick.

I blended some Ground Espresso ink on the trees on the backdrop to make some subtle shadows. I colored the squirrels, wagon and acorn with Copic markers and created my scene by adhering everybody in the nooks and crannies and around the trees.

I had some fun with Lawn Fawn products today! All of the mice in their stamp designs are irresistible! I combined two different mouse-centric sets and three additional die sets as I put together this happy summer scene. And with a slimline card, you have lots of room to build! I colored all of the elements with Copic markers. Maybe today is a good day for a picnic, what do you think?
