I've been hand feeding a squirrel named Clarence since March! And as it turns out, Clarence is a girl, and had two babies in the spring, who I also feed now! Clarence is the sweetest little squirrel, and sits right next to me to eat her little peanuts every day.
When I got these dies - I did not cut them apart, and I don't for most dies, unless they're nested - that way every time I cut, I get extras!
So after I cut it out of Pitch Black cardstock, I separated the inner and outer branches, and put some temporary adhesive on the inner branch piece, and adhered that to my card front. I used a Blending Brush and Soft Granite Ink to create a wintery background for my squirrel.
I then adhered the black frame around my scene, and that's it! One tip when using these dies - it really helps to take the time to put adhesive on all the little branches if you want them to lay flat, but - it's also fun to leave some loose for a more 3D card.
I love how the negative space left by the die cut gives it a frosty feel.
II hope you are having a great week so far! Thanks for stopping by!
