I’m so Sorry

im-so-sorry

My non-traditional Sympathy Card.  I didn’t really want to do a sympathy card but wanted to do something a little fun.  Not sure if this was the way to go but I’ll see what I get for feedback.   I just put a really sweet hand written note inside.   I am close to a month late in getting this out for various reasons   What do you think?   Comments are requested.

Here’s the layout on the Black and white Fox thanks to StampingwithSandy

BLACK AND WHITE FOX
1. Using Fox Punch, cut 1 set in Black and 1 in White
     Cut additional: 1 black (hand / hair) and 1 white tail
Save extra piece for differents fox punch designs for later use
HINT:  I used tombow glue as it can come out small and easy to move around till dry
2:  Head:  On Black Head add white hair and then add white face piece
     Now I added little mouth and used a black point pen for the eyes
3.  Body:  Add White tail to center of body (don’t cut off, leave as is so we can place
the head on top. Punch out the other white tail a little smaller using the fox punch.
Attach to Black tail then adhere to back of body.  Add the little hands to top of body
very carefully inking up only the top so you can get your greeting under the fingers
after you assembly the Fox completely.
4. To assembly:  I put the body flat on my background, then layered the head with a
dimensional on top of where your white tail is.
5.  Then slide your greeting under the hands using just adhesive
  1. For background I used Shimmery White CardStock  (4 x 5 1/4).  Using a pool of Pool Party Ink, in my ink pad cap, I used an Aqua Painter and painted the top.   Using Wild Washi I did the same to the bottom but just went in a different directions.  (I picked the shimmery white cardstock as it has a shine and also it is so easy to watercolor on)
  2. I ran the Woodland Textured Embossing folder though the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot and manually cut out.   Use can use as many or little of these trees as you want.  I used some Tombow glow to attached to my Shimmery White Cardstock.
  3. Stamp some mushrooms in the bottom with Calypso Coral do bring out the color of the Base Card
  4. Stamp a Stump with Early Expresso and manually cut out.  Attach with mono ahesive.
  5. After assembling your Fox, attach with Mono Adhesive also.  Slide your greeting under this paws so it looks like he is holding up a sign

Now how cute is this.  Stampin’ Up! stamp set Foxy Friends with coordinating Punch.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy.   And there so many options to this set.     I am going to get some more samples posted soon using the other images.  They are all so adorable. You can link to images at the bottom of this post.

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately…life got hectic for awhile but I think I’m back on track so will try to post at least twice a week, Wednesday and Sunday.

Measurements for this card:

  1. Base Card is Stampin’ Up! Whisper White cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  2. Mat is Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral size 5 1/4 x 4 and I stamped some leaves in the Calypso Color In
  3. Layer beneath the Design paper is in Stampin’ UP! Smoky Slate cut at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2
  4. The A Little Foxy is the Designer Series Paper used and I cut that at 4 x 2 1/2
  5. I used the Flower Fair Framlet Dies to cut out my scalloped piece using the Smoky Slate Cardstock again.  Used Dauber to highlight the edges.
  6. I stamped the Fox with the Calypso Coral ink on a piece of scrap Whisper White Cardstock and punched out the pieces separately.  The tail I had to stamp again and cut out by hand so I could get it going in the right direction..  Its probably hard to see but the fox head is separate with dimensionals.
  7. I stamped on a scrap piece of Calypso Coral,  I Miss You,  from Gift of Love (Hostess Set) using black ink.  I attached that also using dimensionals.
  8. Last step was to add some pearls.  I just colored these black using a permanent black sharpie
