What Does The Fox Say??

Hi All....this is my post today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog!
Make sure and visit and don't forget we have a "NEW" challenge starting every Monday

Hi, Diane here with you once again with my cute little Valentine Fox card.
I am sure you all have heard the little jingle "what does the fox say"??
It seems you are seeing little foxes everywhere, wrapping paper, on shirts,
ornaments and so on.

That is what gave me the inspiration for this little fellow.  He is made with one of the new
line of "stencils" that is now in the shop at Classy Cards 'n Such.  I have to admit (now this is
going to sound like the old "my dog ate my homework routine", but it is the truth!
When I first started out to use my Fox Stencil, I had purchased some Metallic Copper
Embossing Paste, which I used on my stencil and he was "drying" on my desk.  Well I have a {crafter kitty} that at the worst moment decided to jump on my creative desk...all I can say is I now have bits of Metallic Copper Embossing Paste on my carpet
.  The Metallic Copper Fox will "visit" another day!
Enough said!
I embossed my Fox Stencil onto card stock like you would normally emboss a Spellbinders die, then
water colored him entirely with TH Distressed Marker "Rusty Hinge"...I didn't spend a lot
of time filling him in, as I wanted a "fur" look.
After he was dry (with no cat mishap), I mounted him on a piece of Graphic 45 paper,
which was popped up on an embossed background using the "dots" embossing folder.
My little heart is a Spellbinders die which is included in the set Vintage Label & Banner die set.
Other products used are Joy! Foam Pads Large. 1/2" Scor-Tape
there is a nice selection of paper HERE to choose from
On a last note, what does the fox say??  On the inside of my card, it says "I love you"!!
See you soon!!!

No ... never heard that jingle ... must be an American thing ... though we did play a game when I was young called "what's the time Mr Wolf"
Fabulous card ... He's so cute! Maybe I should have said 'Foxy"

Oh, he's cute! Well, you know I love critters, and I love the dimension you get with the stencil and embossing paste. Adorable!

Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding da, ding, ding, ding. Right, Diane?
Every time I see something about a fox I hear that song going off in my head. Especially the ding dings.
Beautiful card, and I really like the Rusty Hinge color. Happy Groundhog Day!
