Nutty As A Squirrel
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everyone!

We are so happy you could join us today! Today I am sharing a fresh and fun Fall card that features the adorable Busy Squirrel Trio! The very first time I saw these squirrels, I knew I wanted to create a card where that squirrel races up the tree! Just by using a bright autumn color palette, I was able to transform the Holly Vine and Sidekick Frame and Stencil from a holiday die to a Fall die. Never be afraid to really experiment with how many ways you can use a die, along with how you can use color to create a whole new look!

I cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame into a few different colors, because I wasn't sure just how I would arrange the color palette. I like the blue sky behind the white Birch Stitched Frame, but then I played around with a few different background colors before finally selecting white. I like the way the white really shows off the warm fall colors, and brightens the look of the card. I also changed my mind on the color of the squirrels too! They really stand out on the finished card!

Once all the pieces were glued in place, I added a few leaves from the Stitched Oak Trio, and used a tiny hole paper punch to make tiny red berries. Now my nutty squirrels have their very own fall playground!

Thanks so much for dropping by today and sharing a little Fall crafty spirit!

Beautiful card! I just love crafting for the fall season and this is a great die.

I love how bright this fall card is! Great way to show how holly could be used other than for Christmas!

Cuteness! Love how you compiled all the dies so beautifully in bright colors!

You are SO FUNNY!! I LOVE this card, and those dies are FAB!!

The squirrel who is flat looks so real. We have a lot of squirrels in our neighborhood, and this is how I see them 1/2 the time. Nice

Such a cute card! I really like that squirrel running up the tree!

HOW CUTE is this, Michelle! A SUPER WAY to use the Holly Die for other than Christmas! Those little squirrels ARE CUTE! LOL ;)

Ha - I love that squirrel going up the tree! So super - lovely card with a fab layout! TFS

Very cute card, Michele!

so neat, I like the squirrels scurrying all over and the extra leaves you gave to the background!

Ahh, Autumn at its finest! The holly frame in a different color and the oak leaves make for such a playful playground for the squirrels! Excellent card! Thank you!
