Nuts About You

I designed my card for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge - Nuts About You Challenge – Use a Squirrel or Nut. I was looking for a Fall themed card and I found this cute acorn on the Autumn Celebrations cartridge. I cut the different colours using my solid cardstock stash, except for the leaf which I cut from white cardstock. I coloured the leaves to add colour and dimension using Distress Inks. On the inside of the card, I used an adorable stamp/die from Papertrey Ink called Nuts for You. I paper pieced the little squirrel, stamped the sentiment on the large leaf, and added a matching mini leaf. I also stamped the envelope.
