Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Create a template for the fox face. Find the bottom center point of a 4 1/4" x 3 3/4" piece of cardstock. Line up a 2 1/2" circle die and trace an arc from the center point to a point about 3/4" up one side. Repeat on the opposite side. Use the markings to align the die for cutting.

  2. Use the template as a guide to cut a head piece for the fox card.

  3. Step 2

    Add some fur texture with a white marker.

  4. Step 3

    Stamp and cut some flowers to embellish the card.

  5. Cut and embellish some leaves as well. (For the sample, the leaves were punched and then stamped for added detail.)

  6. Step 4

    Cut the ears, either by hand or using nesting leaf dies.

  7. Step 5

    Cut a second ear piece to layer behind. Sponge the inside with white craft ink for contrast.

  8. Adhere the ears at the top of the head panel. Be sure they do not extend more than 1/2” from the edge of the card so it will fit in a standard A2 envelope for mailing.

  9. Step 6

    Adhere the flowers and leaves to your liking around the fox’s ears.

  10. Add other embellishments as desired.

  11. Step 7

    Cut a white card base that is 4 1/4" x 10". Score and fold at 5".

    Line up the head panel for reference, and add eyes to the white card base.

    TIP:
    Use a circle die cut as a guide for the curve of the eyelid.

  12. Trace the curve with a marker and add some eyelashes using downward strokes.

  13. Step 8

    Layer the head panel onto the base.

  14. Add a small die cut heart as a nose.

  15. Step 9

    Complete the card.
