Little Fox

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for a male member of my family. Making cards for guys is tough (for me!) but I think this one will work. I learned a fun technique over at MFT's Camp Create called Stunning Shadow Stamping. This is the first time I've tried it and I really like the outcome!


Here are the products used:
  • Digital stamp:  Little Fox (Gerda Steiner Designs)
  • Rubber stamp:  Trees (Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card Pine Trees)
  • Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Kennedy Grace Beautiful Blooms Hydrangea)
  • Dies:  Simon Says Stamp Wishing, Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders, Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle
  • Colouring medium:  Prismacolor pencils
  • Ink:  Hero Arts Unicorn, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Versamark
  • Embossing powder:  Simon Says Stamp White

Print
