Foxy Birthday

One of my nephews is turning 3 soon and I wanted to share the super cute card I created for his birthday.

I have also entered my card in a couple of this weeks creative challenges as I feel it fits in with their challenge themes.

This was a fairly quick and simple card to create, is super cute and would suit any age from little kids to big kids (and even adults).

I created my cute fox using the new Fox Builder punch and some Tangerine Tango, Whisper White & Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the white & black punched shapes to the fox body with Tombow liquid glue. I stamped the legs from the coordindating Foxy Friends stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and drew on the eyes with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. (You can buy the Fox stamp set and matching punch as a bundle and save 10%)

The balloon is from the Celebrate Today stamp set and was stamped in Pool Party & Island Indigo. It was cut out using the coordinating Balloon Framelits.

My card base is Tangerine Tango with a Whisper White panel. I added a piece of Pool Party washi tape across the bottom to match the balloon. I then tied a small piece of blue & white twine around the balloon then attached the balloon using dimensionals. The fox body was attached with a little snail in the middle to allow me to slip the tail under after I had wrapped the twine around his tail (with a little snail to hold it in place). The end of the tail is raised using a dimensional. The fox's head has been attached with some dimensionals to make it stand out.
