I'm Sorry!




Hello everyone! Here is a card that I made for a friend of mine. When I was  at her house I accidentally broke something of hers and I felt just TERRIBLE about it! She LOVES squirrels and so I made this cute little set to give her.
For the card I made the base in my Gypsy by welding 2 acorns together from Create A Critter and cut the layers for the front. I embossed the bottom layer with the diamonds folder and the top with Swiss Dots. I cut the squirrel also from CAC and stamped the face with a SAD Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed face stamp. To finish I hand cut the tag and stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Scrappy Mom's Furry Friends set. I then attached it with some twine and pop dotted the squirrel to the card.
For the box, I used a gable box that I had bought and added the squirrel with a HAPPY face, an acorn that I stamped the sentiment on to, and added a bow made out of Crinkle Ribbon. I attached it with a decorative brad and I filled the box with mini chocolate bars. Chocolate is ALWAYS the best bribery! :)
I am going to enter this into Peach Keen's LFIF challenge. This time the challenge is to make a shape card and include a PK face stamp. I hope you all are having a great day and thanks for looking!

How nice of you to give your friend a card even though accidents do happen. She probably wasn't even expecting it, which makes it even better. Super cute!
