How ADORABLE!?!?!  
It seems we are seeing MORE & MORE foxes these days, and I have to say these are some of the CUTEST I've seen yet!! 

  Today, I'll be sharing 1 of the 3 cards I created with this stamp set.  
Let's take a look.... 

This fun, card sketch, came from our How-To-Book - Make It From Your Heart, volume 2, pattern #20.  I just ADORE our how-to books! :) 

I choose to use my FAVORITE paper pack in the Seasonal Expression 2 mini-book (SE2)...the means i used the "No Worries" paper pack.  Here is a picture of this GORGEOUS paper collection!!

I wanted to use both flowers, from the stamp set, on this card, but didn't want to "over power" the out came the CLEAR embossing powder :) 

Check out the embossed flowers on the weathered, barn board paper! 

Next I REALLY wanted to use our NEWEST "Thin Cut" metal dies!!  We have added a Basic Oval Thin Cut set & a Star set to our Close To My Heart collection!!

I pulled out the oval one, and the fox fit PERFECTLY on top of the cut!!! Wahoo!!

I used our fabulous watercolor pencils to color in the flower & fox images.  Then I used our Blender pen to "smooth" out the lines.  

Here is the list of products I used for the card above...

  1. Very sweet! I love all of the extra touches like the subtly stamped background. It really adds interest to an already adorable card.

  2. Those subtle clear embossed flowers on the wood really attracted my attention. Love it!

  3. Love how you stamped the background. Never thought to do that on patterned paper.

  4. So sweet! Love the incorporation of No Worries!

  5. Such a pretty card. I especially love how you random stamped/embossed on the pattern paper. Really like the use of No Worries and the addition of the crochet ribbon. Just like everything about it. Can't wait to see your other two creations.

  6. I always love your creativity Krista! FABULOUS card (like always)! <3
