Today I played along with the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers - and once again, it reminded me of how great participating in challenges is - as it makes you get out things you haven't used!
For the Inspiration Challenge Steph asked us to look at the cute web site JellyCat. I was inspired by Cordy Roy Fox and made this cute card!
I used a really fun die from Sizzix that I purchased probably a year ago but never used! It's called Card-Fox Label Fold-Along Die
Note: if you buy the die - be sure to watch the video there to show you how to die cut it and how to put it together.
This is how it looks opened up - and you can use the smaller fox shape inserted inside (that my sentiment is stamped on) as a label by itself (hence the naming of the die "Label Fold Along Die") there's a separate die for that piece.
All I had to do was die cut the pieces - fold the front area (there's a little indent on the die marking where you do a score line - and add the eyes, mouth, fur and tail. I sponged around the face pieces and tail tip with Ranger Distress Tea Die ink .
This is going to a friend who just had foot surgery - and I'm sure it will bring a smile to her face!
