Kinda Nutty Card

AJVD, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, squirrel

It's Monday!  This past weekend I noticed many squirrels in my backyard scurrying around.  Kecia Waters on the blog today with a card inspired their nut gathering antics. 

To make this card, I reached for the AJVD stamp set "Oh Nuts!" designed by Whimsie Doodles.  I stamped the squirrel image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut around the image.

The card panel is a piece of patterned paper from KaiserCraft.   I added a strip of kraft and a strip of white cardstock to the panel.  I stamped the sentiment, also from "Oh Nuts!", with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I adhered the squirrel to the other side of the white strip.

For some finishing touches to the card, there is a ribbon treatment with a button and twine.
