Adorable Squirrel Thankful card
When this Adorable Squirrel die by Frantic Stamper came out, I knew I had to pair it with the Oak Leaf Corner die. The squirrel's hands were just begging to hold one of those tiny acorns. Then when the Thankful die was recently released, that just had to go on the card as well. Don't you love it when the dies all come together like that and you can use a bunch of them on one card?
The quilted star background was manually made following a tutorial I have on an earlier blog post here: http://anngcrafts.blogspot.com/2015/07/halloween-star-quilt-background-card.html.
To make the squirrel more noticeable on the card, I cut out the new Round Scalloped Vignette die on glitter white cardstock. Frantic Stamper came out with a whole line of round and square vignettes, both dies and stamps, that fit inside the round and square scalloped vignettes. You can see all the round vignette dies here: http://www.franticstamper.com/search.asp?keyword=09606&search.x=0&search.y=0&search=GO
and the square vignette dies here: http://www.franticstamper.com/search.asp?keyword=09607&search.x=0&search.y=0&search=GO
There are also clear stamps (available soon) that fit inside these scalloped vignettes.
