Northwoods Winter Squirrel


When I saw this stamp by Northwoods I just knew I had to have it.  Well, don't we say that about all our stamps?  I just think this squirrel is so darn cute! 

I stamped the image in StazOn Black onto Shimmery White paper and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I don't know about you, but I love the Shimmery White paper so much better than the Whisper White.

Merry Christmas was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and embossed with clear embossing powder and layered to a Spellbinders grommet tag.  Lost & Found Christmas rhinestones were added to each end.

My intentions were to keep this card clean and simple.  Everything was adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler, then Mellow Moss and mounted to a Solar White Linen card.


The inside sentiment was also stamped in Cherry Cobbler and embossed.  The pine branches were stamped in Mellow Moss. 


This is the last of my Christmas cards.  As much as I've enjoyed creating them it is time to pull out other stamp sets and start to think about Valentine's Day.  Thank you all so much for stopping by!
