Today I am sharing a card with you that has got me all excited!
I am loving the latest release by Lawn Fawn and was super keen to get to work on some cards to show you (I have more coming soon – be on the lookout for a seasonal hop!).
It’s not often that I make a card that I am 100% happy with, but I feel this one truly shows how far my skills have come in terms of creating a scene, sticking to a colour scheme and finding the right placement of images.
These little squirrels are just the cutest! We don’t have them here in Australia, but I really hope to see one in person some day!
As I mention in my YouTube video on how I made this card (see below for link), we watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation every year on Christmas Eve. It’s an odd tradition, but it’s one that’s stuck with us for a very long time. It’s actually something that I’ve just realised we might have to rethink or skip a couple of scene with my nearly 4 year old. While he’s a great little boy, he’s always listening to what’s going on around him and I’m not sure I need him walking around Christmas Day, telling my in-laws that the “Sh***er’s full”.
The reason I bring this movie up is for two reasons – the word “nuthouse” comes up in a rant and at one point in the movie, a squirrel manages to get inside the house and cause complete chaos. So this card really fits in with what goes on at Christmas time for us!
I just love how all the squirrels are in such different poses – there are going to be many uses for these little critters!
I hope you love this card as much as I do! Here is my video if you’re interested in seeing it all come together. My list of supplies is below.
