Card 1 : Happy Birthday Pattern Party DSP Card

Start with a Cinnamon Cider cs card base. Cut a Pattern Party Host DSP panel and glue it to the card base. Die cut a Vellum cs stitched scalloped rectangle and a Basic White cs stitched scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies.

Stamp the sentiment from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Black ink on the top right of the Basic White cs stitched scalloped rectangle. Glue the stamped Basic White cs stitched scalloped rectangle to the Vellum cs stitched scalloped rectangle. Then add the rectangles to the center of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Be sure that you place the dimensionals on the Vellum cs rectangle so that they are hidden by the Basic White cs rectangle.

Stamp the squirrel outline image from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs. Stamp the coordinating inner squirrel image in 2nd generation (stamped off) Cinnamon Cider ink. Fussy cut out the image and glue it along the bottom of the Basic White cs rectangle overlapping the Vellum cs rectangle. Tie a small double bow with Linen Thread and attach it to the card front under the sentiment with a glue dot.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment and added a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.

Card 2: Hey There! Beauty of the Earth DSP card

Start with a Cajun Craze cs card base. Cut a Beauty of the Earth DSP panel and glue it to the card front. Die cut a Mossy Meadow cs scalloped circle and a Very Vanilla cs circle with the Layering Circles dies.

Stamp the squirrel image from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Black ink on the Very Vanilla cs circle. Color the squirrel and acorn with Stampin’ Blends. Glue the stamped Very Vanilla cs circle to the Mossy Meadow cs scalloped circle and then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add them to the card front.

Cut a Bumblebee cs sentiment banner and stamp the sentiment from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Black ink. Flag the end of the banner with the Tailored Tag punch or your paper snips. Use glue to add the flagged sentiment banner to the circles on the card front. Color the Pearl Basic Jewels with the Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend and add them to the card front. Tie a small bow with the Linen Thread and use a glue dot to attach it under the sentiment banner.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment and added a strip of Mossy Meadow cs to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
