Little red fox

So this morning I had to scrape frost off the windows of my car. Why oh why did I not invest in a remote car starter? Maybe that will be an xmas gift for myself this year. Lol. It was also a reminder that winter is not that far off. Time to stock up on hot chocolate, buy gas for the snow blower, maybe invest in a new pair of winter boots, and work on a stash of cute cards to cheer up a friend with the winter blahs. And what is more cheerful than a cute red fox? :)


I used one of my illustrations from the Ready, Set, Snow set (Taylored Expressions) to create this somewhat rustic card. One quick tip: the sentiment originally arched up at the ends but I made it do the opposite when mounting on an acrylic block. The stamps are flexible enough to do that when they are narrower.

The fox was stamped a second time on another piece of white cardstock, colored and cut out, and adhered over the first using foam tape. That just makes him stand out a bit more. I embellished the scene with some white enamel dots.


For a bit more texture I added a little metal paperclip, some jute, and brown striped grosgrain. All in all, it is a simple layout but the embellishments make it look more complex.


What do you think? Let me know. I always enjoy reading your comments!


  1. I love the look on the fox's face, so cute!

  2. I love how you always showcase the image with fun embellishments. Do you mind sharing how you attach ribbons?

  3. Oh my goodness.. this is so adorable!
