LF Winter Fox Shaped Card

It is easy to make shaped cards using a Spellbinder die. For this Shaped Christmas/Winter Card. Cut cardstock, score the cardstock at 5" on short side, fold the card at the score line. Place Spellbinder Scallop Rectangle die with part of the edge off the edge of the fold. Used Sizzix to cut by placing the top plate so that it was not over the edge ran it thru and cut.

Used a sketch which you can see below.

Stamped Lawn Fawn Fox & sentiment. Colored the Fox using Crayola pencil colors. Almost looks like the fox was die cut but is really fussy cut out with my fav Tim Holtz scissors. Used Wink of Stella clear to add sparkle on the steam & hot cocoa in the mug. Used white gel pen on Fox's tail.
