I am late to the discovery as usual.  But I found a beautiful piece of “wood” designer paper on the back of the Coffee Break DSP.  I paired my discovery with the Hedgehugs stamp set for a little bit cutesy card.


Hedgehugs, 145879


I made another happy discovery in completing the card.  I was wishing for the old oval punches to use for the sentiment and trying to find a punch to use in place of that.  I found the Build a Bow punch.  Yes, the unusual shape the sentiment is punched out with is the loop from the Build a Bow punch.   I debated on cutting off the ends, but decided to make them banner points instead.  It made for a very unusual , but unique, shape.  Remember, good or bad, you saw it here first !!

I paired Soft Sky with the Early Espresso and then added Rose Red as the highlight.  The squirrel is stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend.  I added the loops of Linen Thread beneath the sentiment layer to add a little more texture.

This is a little bit different card than I normally do but I am glad I made the discovery of the wooden DSP.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will continue to check out my cards.  I love to hear from you and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.
