Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Card size: 5 x 7" Start by picking and cutting paper to fit all sides of foldout card, (see Emma Lou's Video on perfectly matching curved edges when cutting paper). Cut the top of the back section of card with the Plain edge of the Classic Border Basics Die. Cut the scallop border from Fleur Border Basics x 3 for each side (to have a nice finish on both side, you could get by with just 3 for one side and leave the backs rough) out of kraft card stock to match card base. Cut the back border with the 2 leaf borders from the Delicate Border Basics die set. Glue papers and borders onto each side of the foldout panels. Cut little grassy knolls for each page using the plain edge die of the Fleur Border Basics on green card stock, sponge Leaf Green on the edges then glue each to the bottom of each panel. Cut 2 pockets from kraft card stock using the Fleur Borders and Pockets Die. Fussy cut one label panel from decorative paper for a sentiment tag to place in 1 of the pockets. Cut 1 of the teeter totter squirrels out of the decorative paper.
Stamp, sponge color and die cut several sets of blossoms using both Rose Madder and Majestic Violet Inks, sponge Rose Madder flowers with Pink Peony and sponge Majestic Violet flowers with Pearlescent Purple. Die cut. Stamp Leafy Accents and the leaves from the Oakberry Blossoms set with Fern Green and sponge color with Leaf Green then die cut. Use the Floral Basics Mold for the flowers and the Leafy Accent Mold for the Leafy Accent leaves (see Emma Lou's Video for using the Shaping Molds). Stamp and die cut all the squirrels and the squirrel cottage (on the cottage, stamp and die cut 2 or 3 times to do layers for dimension) using black ink on white card stock. Use Copic Markers to color. Stamp and die cut all the other flower blossoms then color.
Finish shaping flowers using the Flower Shaping kit, insert stamen, glue and let dry. Start decorating each panel by placing the squirrels. Front panel outside and inside have the teeter totter squirrels (1 set cut from paper to make it easier). Place a few blossoms around coming from the ground then make a small flower arrangement at the top left (outside) and small acorn arrangement top right on the inside. 2nd panel is just paper on the back and the squirrels with the acorn giving and acorn basket on the inside. Make another small flower arrangement at the top right. 3rd panel on the outside, place the tire swing squirrel at the left top and some blossoms growing from the ground at the bottom then arrange flowers and leaves top left to right. 3rd panel inside, glue the kraft pockets to each side at the bottom leaving opening to place tags in. Then glue the blossom squirrel sitting in a big flower and the reaching up squirrel on top of the right kraft pocket. Place hand cut tag into the left pocket. On the back panel, glue the base layer of the cottage on and then pop up a layer of the scaled bottom and a popped up layer of the window frame and mama squirrel on top of the base for more dimension. Add another layer of the butterfly shaping wings up. Add some coneflowers to the ground and then make another acorn and flower arrangement at the top right. Most of the 3D flowers should show when panels are all the way closed and card should lay fairly flat.
