  • add details with a white gel pen

  • color the leaves, acorns and the background with Jaxon Aquarelle watercolors
  • adhere the squirrel to the panel with the help of an Action Wobbler
  • add a strip of kraft cardstock and a strip of brown glitter cardstock to the left side of the card before adhering it to a cardbase
  • cut out the first part of the sentiment from brown glitter carstock using the CUTplorations Happy word die
  • create the second part of the sentiment with the help of a strip of kraft cardstock, the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall stamp set, Versamark and WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine
