Fun Fold Friday ~ Double Z fold ( of sorts )
It's Friday again.... how do the days fly by so quickly?
I don't know.. but Friday means another Fun Fold!
Today, we have this adorable fun fold card and these squirrely little pals only add to the fun!
I created this card using Nuts about Squirrels Stamp Set. This stamp set came out in our Fall/Holiday catalogue and was carried over to the new January - June Mini Catalogue. I used it a lot in the fall, however I see squirrels all year long and I happen to think the stamp set is just adorable, so why not dust it off and use it!
I just used my handy dandy scissors and fussy cut the little squirrels out after stamping.
Beauty of the Earth designer series paper paired so well with the little squirrels, and also added a little touch of spring ( which I am so looking forward to ). The days may go by fast, but here winter seems to last forever. How about you, are you a winter, spring, summer or fall person? Let me know in the comments below.
Anywho.. on with the creation of this fun filled card. I also used the Inspiring Canopy dies to create the tree and leaf effect. I have used this set of dies on so many cards. I just can't even explain the amazing look of the trees and their leaves. You can use it to create lush greens, beautiful fall colors, or no leaves at all. I punched a few acorns and leaves from a previous set of punches. Maybe you have some dies or even embellishments of some sort that you could use to create just a little something in that mid section under the trees.
I also created another card using the same fun layout that features the Awesome Otters stamp set, and the Simply Marbleous designer series paper. Both of these items are free during Sale a-bration.
As you can see this layout was perfect for these little otters! I think they make any card fun!
Just remember to add a little something for bling! As you can see, I forgot!
