Can you believe it's November already? I'm just getting used to the idea that Summer is gone and now it seems like Winter will be here before I know it. Time goes fast enough, no reason to rush it right? So let's enjoy the now! It was a beautiful day in the Chicago area so I took my fur baby Miss Moriko for a walk. The fall foliage put on quite a show for us, and we were quite entertained by all the mischievous squirrels we saw!
It inspired me to make this beautiful fall scene. I started with the Exquisite Branch background die - its perfect for an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5"). I cut this and the Frisky Squirrels from black card stock. I added only portions of the die in blues and yellows, inserted like jig saw puzzle pieces.
I secured the pieces on the back of the die with washi tape. Next I added adhesive foam tape and secured the die cut on a panel of bright orange before I secured it to a white card base. You can really see the depth / window effect it added here.
The sentiment is from the new "Falling For You" stamp set. I stamped it on a Classic Ribbon die cut.
Here is the finished card. The stained glass look is absolutely stunning! Enjoy the now! Hugs!
