Nuts about you!

I've had these nuts and squirrel die cuts for more than 10 years. I think they came from Creative Memories at some point via my mom's cousin. Anyway, I knew they were perfect for this cute card layout!

I wanted to add some texture because I'm not a big fan of plain die cuts layered on top of each other. I embossed the squirrel with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and layered it on the green square with a foam dot. I added the grass cut over top of this and added the pink eyeball. I love those things!

As for the rest, this card is super duper easy. I layered the embellished square onto a Lacey Square die from Spellbinders. I put the background paper onto the card base (paper is by Eye M 2 Cute - love the pink wood grain!) and added the square. I used random letter stickers for the title (Sassafrass, Basic Grey and American Crafts Thickers).

Thanks for taking a peek!
