* Charmed Birthday Fox *

Written on Friday, September 4th, 2015

   Hey, y’all! I know it’s been a while. I went on vacation (wasn’t a vacation… same job, different location) and then the day after we got back, school started. I’ve just been trying to keep my head above water since then. Oh, and I think my muse stayed in Florida. I did manage to get one card made since being back. I also have a couple I made before leaving that I’ll put up next week, but one needs the video(s) edited.

   I got the Charmed stamp set a bit ago from Mama Elephant. I just love foxes and owls! I wanted to keep this card pretty simple since I haven’t been feeling up to anything lately. Back to school colds suck. So, I used 80# Neenah to make my card base. This card measures 3.25″ x 6.25″. Tall and skinny, but not gigantic. I also used another layer of Neenah that I ran through my Big Shot with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I know you can’t see it in the photos, but I promise it’s there! I mounted that on some craft foam. The images are colored on X-Press it cardstock. I cut the wreath and banner using the matching dies and mounted them using foam tape. The fox, I fussy cut (after layering the crown using masking) out and adhered the bottom using a liquid glue but the top with a piece of foam tape. Gives a little bit of dimension. I put her (She has eyelashes) on a circle I cut from Neenah and made a shadow using copics, but also made a yellow glow using Squeeze Lemonade distress ink.

You can see the dimension in the photo above.

I didn’t do any fancy coloring, just wanted to get back in to the swing of things.
All the Copic colors I used are listed below.

   For finishing touches, I used clear Wink of Stella on the banner and also on the crown. I also used a black glaze pen to go over the fox’s nose.

   For the inside, I wanted a really simple birthday greeting, so I decided to use one from MFT’s Birthday Bears set. I centered it using my MISTI and stamped using Lawn Fawn’s Wild Rose ink. I felt this matched the banner on front perfectly.

   I really hope you like my simple card. Any products I used are listed below.
