Playful Squirrels Winter Scene with Third Coast Rubber Stamps

Hi Everyone,
Today's project is a fun wintry scene card.  For this Design Team project, I used a stamp from Third Coast Rubber Stamps called Snowy Scenes - Winter Visitor FA-361-O.    I made this card for something nice to send during the winter; maybe after the Christmas rush is over.  Check out these frolicking, cute little guys.

Card Size: 5” x 6 ¼”

  1. Stamps: Snow Scenes- Winter Visitor – Third Coast Rubber Stamps.  
  2. Card Stock: Green, mustard-Bazzill; Glossy White- Kromekote.
  3. Decorative Paper: Fanciful (966) Fancy Pants Designs.   
  4. Ink: Black Soot Distress Ink (TIM19541) Ranger.
  5. Embellishments: Brown Polka Dot Ribbon; Gem Stickers-Darice.
  6. Other: Copic Markers; Dimensional Adhesive Squares.

Make card from Green CS and layer with DP.  Wrap the ribbon around card and tie it in a knot.  Stamp image on Glossy White CS with Black Soot ink (let dry!).   Color the pine needles, squirrels, and tree with Copic Markers.  Layer the stamped piece with green and mustard CS; add to the card front.   Add the Gem stickers to the lower left corner of card.   On the inside, I stamped a sentiment and used more of the CS and DP.

Okay, that's about it for today. What would you like to see next? A cute and  girly Birthday card or something Christmasy?  Hope you have a great day!!  Love ya.
