Coffee Loving Squirrel with Reverse Stamping by Jess Crafts using Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Fall

Hello crafty friends! It's Jess from Today I am sharing a card made with the Happy Fall and Snowman Friends stamp sets. This card is for the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop that is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner Designs. I love making my own backgrounds but for this card I didn't want to fill the whole background so I used some masking to fill just a small space. For more on how I made this card check out my video.
