I love doing these swaps that my group hosts. I can’t thank the 2 organizers enough for coordinating these for the group! Pene & Tricia!!! Thank you! I love seeing the swap cards and the joy that it brings to the participants. So far we’ve had a Fall, Winter, and Valentines one. Fingers crossed for an Easter/Bunny one.
Anyhow, the card I made for my swap was made using the LF Woodland Critter Huggers die set. For the main card, scored and folded a piece of pink cardstock and cut into the paper, leaving the ears hanging off the edge a bit, maybe an 1/8 of an inch so that it stays connected at the top. I then cut out a cute fox and all the little bits in a couple of shades of pink and black for the eyes, nose, & mouth. I assembled the fox and before adhering to the card base, I wrapped a cute pink, gold, & white ribbon around its neck and held that in place using some double sided tape. I then lined it up to the card base and adhered it down. I also die cut a heart from felt using the same die set… and a cute ribbon from the LF Min Picture Frames die set. I added those onto the fox to give it a finishing touch.
I left the tail for last… because I wanted to do something a bit different. I wanted it to wag…lol. Luckily, I had some mini action wobbles… and attached the tail to the backside using the action wobble.
SO CUTE! Love how it bounces, even though you can see the wobble mechanism on the backside! I then added a cute little heart “tattoo” to its bum to give it something extra! LOL. See the video below to see it in action!
I was super happy how it turned out.. and it was sent off into the mail… on its foxy little way to my swap buddy. She just received it today, hence the reason I am sharing this via blog post… I didn’t want to ruin the surprise! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Hugs-Kim
