"Thinking of You" Card featuring Avery Elle

Hi crafty friends! Today's card was inspired by an image I saw on Pinterest. I've seen quite a few cute images of foxes in laurels and I thought it'd be fun create a card version using Avery Elle's "More Stores" stamp set.

Thinking of You Card by Handmade by Yuki | More Stories by Avery Elle

I started by die cutting a piece of cream cardstock using the one of the pierced oval dies from MFT. I then stamped one of the smaller leaf stamps from Lawn Fawn's "Penelope's Blossoms" in SSS "Beanstalk" dye ink to create a laurel around the panel. I colored the grass directly onto the panel using Copic Markers. I then stamped the Hero Arts "Envelope Pattern" background stamp onto the panel using SSS "Khaki" dye ink and then distressed the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then colored the stamped images using Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. In order to blend the die cuts in with the background, I distressed the edges using Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Fox: E97, E99, W0, W2
Mushroom: YG95, YG97, YG99, E30, E31, E33
Leaves: YG91, YG93, Y26, Y28
Flowers: Y32, Y35, YG91. YG93
Dragonfly: Y32, BG000, BG01
Heart: YR01, YR02
Grass: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99

I stamped the sentiment onto the banner and distressed the edges of the banner using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then adhered my finished focal panel onto a piece of pattern paper from the Fancy Pants "Happy-Go-Lucky!" 6x6 Paper Pack. I realized I wanted to add some twine after I had adhered all of my layers down, so in order to do this, I pierced two small holes on either side of the pattern paper and wove my twine through. And that finishes up the card for today. Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful day! ♥
