Nuts About You
By Jeanne Jachna
Hi friends and thanks for stopping by! I hope life is treating you well and you're taking time to enjoy the simple things in life. For me that's a homecooked meal, walking the dog, or making with bright colors and cute images that just make me smile!
The new Lattice Plate die makes a beautiful background for just about any card. I topped it with a Pointed Oval Frame to "set the scene" for my Valentine card. I cut the inside of the oval from light blue card stock to create a sky. Next I layered some green paper that I cut with the Wave Trio and then cut it again with the same oval so that the shape matches the inside of the frame perfectly.
I cut Whittle Hearts in ombre shades of red and pink to create the foliage for the Whittle Tree Border. Little circles or other shapes can be used to add color and foliage for different times of year.
A Whittle Forest Squirrel was cut from kraft card stock. I used a marker to add a little detail on the tail and down it's back. The squirrel is holding a little heart and the "I'm Nuts about you" sentiment is added along the top of the card.
I think you could recreate this scene for each of the four seasons simply by changing the colors and the foliage shapes. I love products that are versatile so I can get more use from them! Have a great day!
