I'm Nuts About Johnny

I made a card for Johnny last week (my last week before I started my new job).  The main image is a squirrel with nuts.  I received it in a SCS swap several years ago but hadn't used it until now.  I colored it with my Copics, but lost the list, other than the red heart is LipStick Red.  The card base is brown, the mat is white paper embossed with the Fiskar's tree bark texture plate.  I then used a rainbow pad of browns to give the texture some color. I used one of the Nestie Labels to cut out the image. I think if I were to do this card again, I would fussy cut around the squirrel/nuts to leave more of the "tree" showing.  To highlight the red heart, I used 3 red brads on the top/right corner of the card.

The inside has handwritten "I'm nuts about you!"

Paper:           DCWV card base, generic white
Stamps:        Whipper Snapper's Nutty Squirrel
Inks:             Dee Gruenig's Brown Blending Box ink pad, Copics, colors unknown except for the

Accessories: Fiskar's Texture plate, Nesties Labels 15, brads
