Cute squirrel cards - love their cheeky smiling faces

New stamp set - Nuts About Squirrels 

Part of my Animal Theme week 

I was delighted to open this stamp set as the first in my series of 'Animal Theme' cards this week. The 2 squirrels are so cute, and being a photopolymer stamp set, they are so easy to stamp and line up.

Here are my finished cards from today:

I love their cheeky little faces, and the sentiments too are just perfect. I think my favourite is probably the Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed one!

Here is the stamp set Nuts About Squirrels:

I used our Note cards and envelopes as the base for these 2 cards, and one has a Cajun Craze layer and the other a Granny Apple Green layer. I used our Basic White cardstock (thin) for the stamped layer.

Dimensions as follows:
Basic White Thin Card: 3" x  4 1/2"
Coloured Card Layer 3 1/4" x 4 3/4"
Basic notecard (foldeed) 3 1/2" x 5" 

I stamped the squirrels in Early Espresso, and used Grey Granite ink for the infill.  For the leaves, I used Cajun Craze ink, and for the acorn, I used Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.

You can see my video here if you would like to see how the cards were made:
