Huggable Squirrel Card

CTD392

I am excited to finally participate in my first Color Throwdown Challenge after many years of following them. The colors from this challenge 392 really caught my attention.

Don’t you just want to give this little guy a big hug?  This punch art squirrel was inspired by this Nuts ABout You stamp set.  This squirrel was created from SU! punches of which a couple have already retired and several more will be retiring soon at the end of this month.

Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Basic Black cardstock were used to create this punch art squirrel.  The edges of all pieces were sponged with Soft Suede ink to give it more definition.  Here are the punches used:

Head/Face – Tab, Extra Wide Oval, Large Oval
Body – Owl Builder, 1″ Circle
Ears – Bird Builder
Eyes – Bitty Butterfly
Pupils – Owl Builder
Nose – Cupcake Builder
Arms – Tree Builder
Feet – Small Heart
Tail – Blossom Petals Builder, Extra Wide Oval, Large Oval

I heat embossed Big Hugs from Jumbo Stripes with white embossing powder on a strip of Pacific Point cardstock.  The for you was die cut from Smoky Slate cardstock.

Depending on the inside sentiment (such as “on your promotion” or “on your special day”), I think this card would work as a congratulatory or a birthday card.  Or simply it could just be a fun card to put a smile on someone’s face.
