Winter Fox

Did you know Florida can have a Nor-Easter?  I didn't either, but apparently we are having one.  It has been raining all weekend (not that I mind it), and it has really put me into a fall mood.  I'm not quite ready for winter, so I will still enjoy the warmish crisp weather.

Here is a card using the Winter Fox stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  I kind of like to just make a card out of card stock, and create my own pattern.  Pattern paper can be hard for me to use sometimes.  So, its easier to make my own.  I repeatedly stamped the sentiment in a green ink, for a tone on tone effect, I would have used Versamark, but it wasn't dark enough. Then I stamped the sentiment in black once to make it stand out.  I stamped the fox onto the die cut, then stamped it again onto white cardstock, colored it in with copic markers, cut it out and popped it up onto the die cut (whew longest run on sentence ever lol).  To finish the card off, I added some black ribbon at the top of the card, and a few black rhinestones underneath the sentiment.

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, they are having a giveaway this week (fun stuff!). Also take a little visit to the rest of the designers blogs, to see what they cooked up with this cute stamp set.

Totally love the patterned paper, I have trouble with it sometimes too. I love it but many times end up making my own. The fox fits perfect on you snowflake!
