I love foxes. I think they are so stinking cute. I think my dog Franklin kind of looks like a fox. I haven’t made a fox card earlier, because I didn’t have the right color orange. I couple weeks back, I bought some Bazzill Orange Marmalade Card stock, which is the perfect color for fox. I started this card by cutting out my fox on the Cricut. I cut the fox at 3″ in Orange Marmalade and gray blue for the shift layer. After I glued the layers together, I inked by the fox with some Tea Dye. Then I took my little fox, and held against various sheets of cardstock until I picked this red and gold pattern from the ancestry.com stack.
Then I cut my layers. I cut two pieces of Bazzill brown cardstock at 4 x 5 1/2″ and 2 x 5 1/2″. For the patterned paper, I cut at 3 1/2 x 5″ and 1 1/2 x 5″. Then I layered the patterned paper on the corresponding brown cardstock. Then I adhered the small layer towards the bottom of the larger layer. For the ribbon, I used a white piece of ribbon that I inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China, Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo. Once I had the color I desired, I taped the ribbon down.Then I adhered the fox down, before making a bow. For the sentiment, I used a cardstock tag punch out from the Garden Party Stack. After the writing the sentiment:
Always do what you are Afraid to do ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I inked up the tag with tea dye, and vintage photo. Then I attached the tag with a brad. For my card base, I used a gray blue 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of card stock. After folding it, in half to make a A2 size card, I inked up the card base with broken china. Then attacked my layers to the card base. I hope you like this super cute fox card.
