Foxy Friend- Two Challenges in One!
I had another opportunity to stamp today (yea!) and decided to create a card using the new set, Life in the Forest, along with the PPA187 Colors from Pals Paper Arts and the FMS118 Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
I do hope that you have had a chance to visit both sites- great ideas and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Using Basic Black Classic Ink, stamp the fox image onto Whisper White cardstock and color using Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red and Sahara Sand. “Fussy-cut” the image out by hand.
Cut a square piece of Soft Sky cardstock and stamp the tree image using Basic Black Classic Ink. Color with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and add the torn snow banks (Whisper White cardstock torn by hand and layered over the foreground area).
Adhere the fox image and create a few shadows and highlights on the snow with the Sahara Sand and Soft Sky Stampin’ Write markers.
Add the snowflakes using the Chalk Marker, trim the image and mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment using Real Red onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Add the horizontal panel of Soft Sky cardstock (layered onto Real Red strips) and adhere the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
To finish off the card, mount the entire panel onto the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Thanks again for stopping by! I know this style is a bit unusual for me but I am looking forward to creating a few more cards with the new stamp set, Life in the Forest- it has the cutest animal images :-) !
