Hey everyone! Happy Thursday!
So as soon as the last Lawn Fawn release came out I nabbed myself the beyond awesome, beyond adorable Into The Woods set! That was at the end of August. And then I waited. And waited. And waited. And waited.
Eventually I got tired of waiting and used the tracking number to find out that my beloved goodies were being held hostage and to ransom (is Customs charges I didn’t know about as they hadn’t notified me!) at my local post depot! Well, I marched myself down there (well, actually I drove) and sorted that right out! Some arguing and bureaucratic hoop-jumping and cash-parting later I walked out with my new goodies – some two weeks later than I should have! Better late than never!!
I couldn’t *wait* to ink up that adorable set – but by now I have seen dozens of amazing cards out there created by very talented crafters and friends, and I really wanted to create something unique and different. You know me! So I finally sat down with my set tonight, and ended up with this:
*swoon* I just love that adorable little fox!! Isn’t he the cutest?!?!
And see – not foxy colours! A silver fox instead! Yeah!!
I started with some Shimmer White cardstock and stamped my fox using Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamped off once first so I could get a grey instead. I added some very light shading with Copics and a touch of extra glitter with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen (thanks to Debby Hughes for the inspiration for *that*!). I trimmed him out and set him aside whilst I worked on the rest of the card.
Onto my Shimmer White card base I repeatedly stamped the snow flurry from Let It Snow using Versamark ink and heat embossed using WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. *Love* the gentle snowfall that evokes!
Next I decided to incorporate a snowy log for the fox to sit on. I stamped and heat embossed that onto another strip of Shimmer White cardstock, first adding some Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter on top of the embossing powder before heating to get a glittery top of the log! I trimmed it out and added some subtle colour with Copics then adhered that and my fox to my base!
A stamped and heat embossed sentiment from the new Winter Gifts set was the penultimate touch – the final touch being that adorable snowflake caught on little foxy’s nose! I stamped and heat embossed a single snowflake from Let It Snow, carefully trimmed it out and adhered it using Pinflair Glue Gel. And then I took a step back and went ‘Awwwwwwww!’. 🙂
Well I would love to hear what you think of this little card! I absolutely adore it personally! Thanks so much for stopping by today – I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!

I've seen this set popping up everywhere recently, I even debated over getting it myself but it probably wouldn't get a workout good enough to justify the spending 🙂
