Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge: Chubby Fox Birthday Card

Happy Friday! Today I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge. The moment I saw the inspiration photo, I knew I wanted to use the super cute fox from the "Chilly Chums" stamp set. I recently got this set and I've been dying to use it!

For my card, I was inspired by the wood elements and hints of gold. I started off by die cutting my background panel using an A2-sized stitched rectangle die. I used a stencil for the vertical stripes and applied some Delicata "Golden Glitz" pigment ink using a make-up sponge. I then colored the super cute fox using Copic Markers and cut him out using the coordinating die.

Fox: E15, E17, E19, R01, W0, W2

To create my scene, I die cut two hills using the Mama Elephant "Landscape Trio" set out of olive green cardstock. To add to the woodsy feel, I added some trees die cut with the tree die from the Lawn Fawn"Sweater Weather" die set. To ground my little fox, I created a shadow under him with my YG91 and YG93 Copic Markers.

For the sentiment, I used one of the small frames included in the SSS "Frames" set and die cut it from olive green and khaki cardstocks. I inlaid the olive green frame around khaki base and then used the happy birthday from the "Birthday Words" set to inlay the sentiment.

I really like how my card turned out and love how this card would be perfect for winter or fall. Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! ♥
