The challenge I thought of for the Create: blog last week was to create an animal-shaped card. With a son named Fox, how could I not make a fox-shaped card? It's a girly card, but hey, it's still a fox!
A detail shot.
Supplies: Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Scenic Route Paper Co.; Toothpick flag, leaf stickpin: Pebbles; Tinsel topped dowel, jewel chain: Pink Paislee; Baker's twine: The Twinery; Personal electronic cutting machine (Cricut), cartridge (Give a Hoot); Scissors: Fiskars; Typewriter: Smith Corona; Other: Hot glue gun
I'm always so amazed by how lengthy my supply lists are! I'm like, really, I used all of that on this tiny thing? Anyways, to make this card, die cut a fox and all the layers from orange, black, and cream cardstock. I totally bought the Give a Hoot cartridge just because it has some foxes on it. Layer the fox pieces together and glue the top of another fox piece to the back to create a card. Knot two pieces of orange baker's twine around the neck and hot glue a jewel chain below. Type "hey foxy" on a piece of cream lined paper, trim it out, then adhere it to a toothpick flag. Hot glue the flag as well as a white leaf stickpin and a tinsel topped wooden dowel behind the legs of the fox. That's all!
The challenge for this week is to create a card with lots of jewels. I love me some bling so we'll see if I can find some spare time to create a card for it!
