Hello Friend Fox Card

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

I made this card last summer and forgot to post it. I don't recall if it was inspired by any other card I saw.... However, I do know for sure that I learned to do the cool background from somewhere else (I think a PTI designer) where you pat your impression plate with white pigment ink and then run it through your machine to emboss it. Looks very cool! I like that it gives a little extra something to the background. The fox stamp is paper pieced from the Hello, Foxy mini stamp set from Papertrey Ink (PTI). For the torn paper edges, I used one of those deckle edge rulers you tear against to make that effect. It was the first time I had used this tool and it turned out pretty good.

UPDATE: I think it was this burlap-fronted fox card by Jessica Witty that inspired my card.

Stamps: Hello, Foxy from PTI, Bountiful Banners from PTI
Die: Bountiful Banners from PTI
Ink: Smoky Shadow, Fresh Snow pigment ink, and Kraft ink from PTI
Impression Plate: Woodgrain from PTI
Misc. I think the butterfly is from a Martha Stewart Punch
Cardstock: Ocean Tides from PTI, Kraft


  1. So super cute! The markers I used for my flamingos are promarkers; pastel pink, salmin and Touch fruit pink. Hugs, Karin

  2. This is precious, Dawn! Love the woodgrain paired with that gorgeous, blue chevron!
