Who says stencils for card making are out of fashion?

Not us and not you when you see how Allison made this charming card! We are pretty sure each of you has a stencil kicking around somewhere and after checking out today’s post, we are betting you will be digging them out! Shall we see how Allie created this fabulous all-occasion card?

First, cut your layers. Allie used a pale yellow between her white card base and her decorated panel.

Take your top layer and sponge our Fern Color Fuse all over and around your stencil to create that lovely colored “cloud”. Stamp your sentiment in the center near the bottom to leave space for your little vignette. Then cut the panel with one of the Nested Rectangle with Pierce dies for additional texture on your card.

Now stamp, color and die cut all your little components for your scene. Allison used one of the foxes from our new Be Wild set, which is FLYING off the shelves!, and our Sloped Fence adorned with some tulips and stems.

Then build your little scene first by adding your die cut cuties with varying thicknesses of adhesive, from liquid glue to different thicknesses or foam tape. Allie decided to add a little strip of grass tied up with some baker’s twine and it’s just such a sweet little touch! Once you have your scene all set, pop in your little foxy friend using more foam tape.

To add even more visual interest to this card, Allie attached her layers to each other slightly off kilter as we also saw on this project. Once her layers were set, she just popped it onto her card base and – VOILA! – adorable card!

Here are the items from our store that Allie used today. We are so thrilled that so many of you love our little foxes and have replenished the stock!
