Spring Fox

Good morning Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today with a bit of spring!  I love the Stitched Flowers dies and wanted to showcase them. (And they're on sale for a limited time!)  What better way than with this sweet fox.
I had an idea for my palette of colors but nothing specific.  So I started by using the Stitched Flowers die and cutting them in multiple colors. (I now have a lot extra for additional cards! So easy!)
Then I played with the colors and arrangements and eventually decided on these flowers in the blue family.  The fox is cut from Cajun Craze cardstock with his chest and tail tip in Very Vanilla.
I cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it at 4 1/4 for a top fold A2 card.  I cut 5 1/2 x 4 1/4  panel for the front that I embossed with a striped embossing folder.  And my last panel was cut with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle dies.
I assembled the fox and colored his eye and nose with a black multi-liner pen. Then I took the stitched panel and arranged the flowers.
Finally, I used foam dots to adhere the fox between the flowers and foam tape to pop the stitched panel up off the card face.

I just love the new Stitched dies!  They really add a special detail to the images.  The Stitched dies and the new Spring dies are all on sale for a limited time.  Make sure to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a creative weekend!
