I loved the little squirrel from the Acorn Autumn set from the first time I saw him and thought he would make an adorable fall card.

Design Tips

Corri - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Take inspiration from your paper collections. I loved the color combination on this hexagon paper and based my design on that.
  • Using pop dots, google eyes and burlap ribbon helped to add a lot of dimension and texture.

I hope you like my fun fall card! I love browsing through all the SVG Collections looking for card bases and elements that can be mixed up for a whole new look.
