Thankful Fox

Hi and welcome!  I'm thrilled to be Guest Designer over at Time Out Challenges.  This challenge is Inspired by Words:

'Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart'

A beautiful sentiment, indeed.  And here is my card:


I stamped, colored and die-cut the adorable fox image from Fall Fox and put him to one side.  On the white card base, I die-cut a square out of the top center and adhered some acetate and patterned paper in the gap.  I then stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink.

Finally, I adhered the wee fox with foam tape.  A very CAS card!




I used a sketch from SugarPea Designs Challenge, so I'm linking up there.

That little fox is so adorable, and you have colored his so beautifully. What a great idea to use acetate in the aperture, and stamping the sentiment on it. Fantastic and wonderfully CAS! It's wonderful to have you as GD! I have been an admirer of your work for quite a while!

I love the look of the acetate over the patterned paper peeking through your square. Have you started a new trend?

Congrats on your Guest Designer spot, Karren! Your little fox is so sweet, and you've colored him beautifully! I love the effect of the acetate over the pattern, too...I know it can be challenging to stamp on acetate, but your sentiment looks amazing! Such a charming card!
