Allie says “These cuties always find their way into a few of my cards through the year. I love the look on their faces and their playful postures.” Of course the way she’s colored them and positioned them on her card and added her little holiday details certainly adds to their cuteness factor!

To make this card, Allie cut the postage strip using one of our Slimline Dies from white card stock and adhered to a layer of red patterned paper and stuck that assemble to her slimline sized card front.

Then she cut another piece of white card stock to fit inside the postage frame and blended some Color Fuse inks over the panel creating that rich background. She then went a step further and added some snowflakes using a white Gelly Roll pen.

She then cut her evergreens, birch trees and a deckle hill from more white card stock. She added her birch trees to the background, trimming to fit and did the same with her deckle hill snow bank.

She used more light colored ink to blend in a bit on the edges of the evergreen trees and decorated them with Nuvo Drops and Stickles. While her trees were drying, she stamped, colored and cut out her foxes.
