A Card Just for You

Squirrels and hedgehogs have been kinda trendy for a while, and not only in the paper craft world, but that is a bonus for this card. I have a niece for whom these darling critters are not only trendy, but a working passion. Among her many talents and jobs with the care of wild animals, she has rehabilitated numerous baby squirrels.  This card is for her, but it's cute enough to send to anyone this time of year.

My hobby is completely validated when I can say, that I bought this stamp or that punch to make a card for one particular person. Sometimes I want the card to come screaming out of the envelope, "I made this just for you.", and other times I want it to whisper, "Did you notice this is just for you?". The challenge and fun are using those unique items again to make cards for anyone, whether they follow Biddy the Hedgehog on Instagram or not.  

Card Details: Folded vanilla cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Emboss the front of the card with squirrels and hedgehogs (Lifestyle Crafts); stamp acorn (Stamping' Up) in brown ink twice on three colors of paper, fussy cut the tops and nuts separately, adhere them in varying patterns; trim stamped image with deckle edge scissors; adhere over a brown ribbon using mounting tape.
