My Favorite Things – Nuts… for you!

Hi everyone! Welcome to this month’s Creative Construction with Blueprints!

This time it’s all about strips, tags and flags! Here is what I came up with:

I chose to make a little scene with the Forest Friends stamps. I kept the design simple. This helps focusing on the image. I first die cut a stitched card panel from white cardstock using Blueprints 25. Next, I created a mountain of acorns with a squirrel on top. I used masking paper to achieve this result. I then colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with scissors. I blended the background with Distress inks. I die cut a banner strip from Blueprints 25 and heat embossed the "for you" sentiment from the Birdie Brown Birthday Bears set with white embossing powder. I attached all elements to the panel using foam pads. I made a flag with the banner and used a toothpick that I fixed with glue. I fixed a strip from the Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack to the bottom of the card base and the panel to the card base.

Head over to the MFT blog to check out what the rest of the design team has created!

Francine, this is so adorable and sweet - love it! What an awesome job you did creating the pile of acorns with the squirrel behind it! Your coloring makes it all so perfect. I like that checkered strip at the bottom, too.
