Squirrel Friends Birthday card

Yeah I’m a little late this week, my day job is cutting into my craft time, if you’ve been following you’d see that I have been playing along with Craft Roulette, it is quite fun and sometimes following the parameters is quite a challenge, but so worth it when a fun and unique card comes out of it. This weeks parameters are…..

My card of choice is “pop up” , I used strawberry fields colours, my bench is my chair, and I used yellow plaid. Here is my card.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

1- cut and assemble the card base as shown below

2- cut the grass and Sky as shown below. The sky is retired Stampin Up, and the other is from my stash. I used Natures Edges to cut the hills.

3- die cut and assemble the Garden Bench (assembly video @ link)

4- add the little supports to bench as well.

5- die cut squirrels from Woodland Animals, I cut one in shades of brown and ones in shades of grey. I got the ideas to use acorn that comes with the Woodland animals to make strawberries from Marie Stuart on the Craft Roulette Facebook page, I used the flower from the Garden bench to make the leaves, to make the large strawberries I used a heart die, and the same flower to make the leaves. I added some grey and white dots and white highlights. The larger leaves are from the Autumn Elements die set.

6- add the elements to the card, I also added some layered rectangles from Rectangle and Labels Crosshatch set and the “love you” from the Pop n Swap set. The butterfly is from the Backyard Charms . The bird is from the Frame Pull Pop up

7- I added the sky and hill to the front the same as the inside. I added Happy Birthday and the Happy Birthday Shadow

8- I added a ribbon a few clear bubbles, and a bit of Wink of Stella.

Other Tools used

Fine Tip bottle

Lineco Neutral PH Adhesive
