DT 160 - Squirrel Birthday Fun Fold Card

 Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 160!

The small graphic is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for details. 

Thing 3 requires that we use something that hops, skips or leaps. I have a few frog stamps but the images are small... too small for what I had in mind. I chose squirrels - they definitely leap! 

I created the scene on the front by stencilling some clouds and then adhering the stamped and coloured die cuts. The grass was stencilled last as I wanted it to look like the squirrels were in the foreground. Inside the card where there is a place to write a message, there is another squirrel and sunflower plant. This card folds flat for mailing and fits into a standard A2 envelope. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this challenge. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

I am also linking up my card with the challenge at Creative Creases (fun folds).

We can't wait to see what you create!




  1. This fold is perfect for your family of squirrels. Back when I was a child my dad had a bird feeder ourside our dining room window... and we watched many squirrels do some pretty high leaps in the air to just catch on to the feeder. Adorable card.

  2. Great fold and love the little squirrels and sunflowers.

  3. I love this fun fold! I saw a few like it while trying to decide what to do and it's really such a fun one! I didn't end up trying it out, but now I'll have to after seeing your cute creation. :)

  4. Great fold to use for those cute little squirrels, I love seeing ideas for those sets I have in my stash too!

  5. Great fun fold card, Alyson and I love the pretty sunflowers. Your squirrels are a good choice since they too love sunflowers. My sunflowers are never flowers for long because of them. Thank you for playing with the Creative Creases Challenge, and I hope you can join us again soon. We really appreciate your support!

  8. Alyson I love your adorable squirrels playing in the sunflowers. I don't think I've ever tried that fold. Thank you for the inspiration and thank you for joining us for Creative Creases Challenge #76. Hope to see you again soon.
