Have you ever seen a live hedgehog? They are really tiny. I thought they were as big as guinea pigs but they are really the size of mice. The ones we saw in a Japanese department store were so cute I wanted to buy one, but of course Hawaii doesn't allow them as pets. The best I could do was buy a Lawn Fawn hedgehog die and stamp set. To make the hedgehogs more realistic, I die cut them and then glued on some Fun Flock. After the glued flock was dry, I stamped the hedgehog image over the flocked die cut shape. I discovered that some inks print over the flocking very lightly and other inks print a dark image, so you will have to do a test to see what look you prefer. The die cut leaves used on this card were also Lawn Fawn products. Don't you love the veining?
The card was cut using a die from the Little B set that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. This set is great because the die precisely makes a neat fold in the card as it cuts it out. Also the set has several card sizes and shapes to add to the front. I was thrilled to find the green textured paper (12x12) and the Hero Arts sentiment stamp in the clearance sale bins at Ben Franklin Crafts. They both perfectly fit the look I planned for my card! I hope that you will search for autumn crafting goodies at your nearest BFC store too. See you there!
