Nuts About You by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have a trio of cards to share today using Nuts About You (Sku #4885).  This sweet set featuring some cute little squirrels was released as a Valentine's Day stamp set, but I wanted to show you how great it is for other occasions.  I've had these acorn/fall themed papers for a while, and I knew they'd be perfect with this set:
 I coloured the images with Copic markers, picking up some of the colours from the papers:
 I love the little acorn stamps that are included in the set.  It also comes with four different sentiments, and another large image that I don't show here.
 For this one, I pulled out my Gift Box Punch Board and created a little envelope from one of the patterned papers, just big enough to hold one of the images.  I glued one of the acorns to the edge of the flap, and I used some temporary adhesive (Dotto Dots) that will keep the envelope shut, but allows the recipient to easily open it up.
 And when you lift the flap, here's the little squirrel hidden inside.  The card is 5 1/2" square.
 Copic Markers: Browns - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E44, E43, E41
Greens - G21, YG11, YG00
Blues - B02, B00, B000, B0000
Corals - R24, R22, R21
Happy stamping!
