Squirrels are out running about throughout the entire year. Even though the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set is thought of as a fall stamp set as part of the July-December 2021 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, it certainly can also be used for an adorable girly handmade birthday card idea.
Look at how stinkin’ cute the squirrel is! She’s pink. There is such a thing as red squirrels. Why not pink? And, just to be sure, eyelashes were added just so there’s no doubt it’s a girl squirrel. 🙂 My girlfriend suggested the eyelashes. I used an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker from the Neutrals Stampin’ Write Markers set to quickly draw them.
The greeting “Nuts about you!” is a fun pun. I forgot to take a picture of inside the card before giving it away, but it read “Happy Birthday” which is part of the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Set.
The flowered background paper is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Polished pink is one of the colors in the paper and was also used for my girl squirrel. Every girly card also needs some ribbon. The new Polished Pink 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon is awfully pretty. So, too, are the other 2021-2022 In Color ribbons of the same style.
