It's Your Day My Foxy Friend!

by Joanne James14. July 2016 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a sketch for you:

 

For my card today I headed straight to my Little Foxy suite of products and decided on another card using the cute Foxy Friends set and co-ordinating Fox Builder Punch - I just couldn't resist!

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

My Foxy Friend - I know I could have made so many animals with my Foxy Friends stamp set, but the fox won me over again! I stamped him in Calypso Coral and punched all the pieces out separately (I punched the tail backwards, as I still wanted it on the left, although it would have been much easier to stamp and punch the right way around and stick it on the right!) and layered them onto my tree stump, which I cut out by hand.

Toadstools Galore - I chose another of the great patterns from the A Little Foxy DSP stack for my feature panel and used its colour scheme to dictate the mat layers and base colour of my card. I went with a square base as per the sketch in Smoky Slate and left it plain; on reflection I think it could use some texture as it is a rather large expanse of plain cardstock, but I am not unhappy with it! I also added a swathe of Pool Party Satin Ribbon beneath my fox as one of the horizontal banners; I love this satin ribbon and am so pleased we now have it in more colours.

Sunburst Sayings - I went with a simple birthday sentiment from the 'Sunburst Sayings' set, continued on the inside of my card with 'Happy Birthday to you', stamped in Archival Grey directly onto my card base. Nothing too fussy as I think this card would work well as either a male or female card, so wanted to keep it neutral.

The Foxy Friends bundle just has so many creative possibilities! If you haven't bought yours yet, this month would be the perfect time to do so; if you purchase the bundle and a pack of the 'A Little Foxy' Designer Series Paper Stack together you will have spent £45 and so you will earn yourself a £4.50 money-off coupon any purchases next month too - bargain! Just click on the links below to hop on over to my online store to order yours today - and don't forget to add this month's hostess code 63RNATE3 to get a little thank you in the post from me too.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

I love this fox!  I finally broke down and purchased him...I've seen to many cute projects  (including this one) not to own him for myself! Super duper job with the sketch! I love your ribbon treatment too.
