An Autumnal Squirrel

Autumn has well and truly arrived, so it was time for this cute autumnal squirrel to come out to play.

We have lots of grey squirrels in our garden and don’t get any reds in our area, so I thought I would create my own!

I stuck to the Regals colour collection for this project, using Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Crushed Curry as my main colours. Soft Suede has snuck in there too for the acorn.

Nuts about Squirrels from the July-December Mini Catalogue provides all the stamps for this card.

To begin, a background of falling leaves is created.

Next, the circles are cut out using the Layering Circles Dies and the cute squirrels sits in the middle.

A length of Linen Thread wraps around the project for the squirrel layers to sit on.

The squirrel sits over this using Dimensionals.

Finally, a sentiment stamped onto a separate piece of cardstock is stuck to the bottom corner.

This is a fun project to create and great to send to all ages.
