greeting cards

Layered fox


The starting point for this card was one of the smallest pieces in my PHD (projects half done) box. That and a selection from my much under-used patterned paper collection…

The “happy birthday” is actually a neat border die (it might have slipped my mind that I actually had this die until I came to write up this card… whistles nonchalantly… too many supplies you say… never… just need a better memory…) and I just coloured over the letters with a dark grey Copic to add a bit of contrast and then added a layer of pico embellisher for a bit of shine.

I am far from comfortable with choosing and using patterned papers, but I do like how this one turned out.

Another catch-up post. This card was made on 1st September 2016 as part of my brief blitz on my PHD box.

  1. It’s funny that we all have some area we feel less confident with. The mix of papers is great. I really like the different textures and colours. And the fox is just adorable.

    1. I have a ridiculous stash of patterned papers, I really ought to use them more often… after all, the only way to get confident with anything is to practise. And it’s good to have another option for creating backgrounds for bits of Copic colouring.

  2. I think it turned out just fabulously with the patterned paper – I love how you’ve chosen them for their different look – my favourite is the stones. And well done you for getting these all blogged too! xx

    1. The stones are a favourite of mine too. And it is such a relief to get everything blogged – now I can attempt to tidy up and maybe even create something new!
