Singing Squirrel Card

Happy Friday! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and Simple), Singing Squirrel Card that I made last month for a friend crafter. :o)

To make this card, I used stamps from two super cute stamp sets: images from Gerda Steiner Designs 'Happy Fall with Squirrel' stamp set and a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Belated Birthday' stamp set.

I stamped a squirrel on a watercolor paper and colored her in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the squirrel and traced edges with black marker.

Then I stamped the sentiment and another squirrel on a white cardstock paper panel and colored the squirrel in black. I softened the watercolored squirrel with a stylus ball on a soft working mat and glued her over the black one. Then I stamped music notes on the panel, as the squirrel is singing Happy Birthday to her. :o)

I glued foam tape and foam sheet scraps on the panel and glued the panel on a white top folded card base. Lastly, I glued another white cardstock paper panel inside the card base to make the card sturdier. :o)

Card dimensions: 98 mm x 142 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8"")
