Happy Birthday Squirrel

Hi there,

I would like to show you this fun masculine Birthday Card using Gerda Steiner Designs stamps over at the Karten-Kunst Blog:

  • cut out a stitched panel using the Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers from Neenah Desert Storm Kraft cardstock
  • stamp the singing squirrel from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall stamp set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) and mask it 
  • stamp a background with the help of the "Happy Birthday" from the Gerda Steiner Designs Just Sentiments set and Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • color the squirrel with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Zest-it
  • add highlights to the nose and the teeth of the squirrel with a white gel pen
  • stamp some music notes from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall set to the background with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • before adhering the panel to a cardbase adhere a strip of black cardstock and a strip of orange glitter cardstock to the left side of the card
