A belated Valentine or Anytime Love Card

I am obsessed with foxes!  I saw this set by Technique Tuesday and knew I must have.  I finally got a chance to play with it and made a sweet card for my son for Valentine’s day but it could really be an anytime love card. I saw a super cute spinner card created by Stephanie Davis.   I was totally inspired to create a card with Frederick Fox.

Here is the inside of the card. I use a be my valentine sentiment but it could have been anything.

The true challenge was stamping the reverse of Fredrick.  To to this I stamped him on my all purpose mat then gently pressed the cut out on to the masked stamped image.  I then took a black pen and inked the lines.  I was pleased the way it turned out, although it took me many tries.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with happiness.  Things have been out of sorts around here so I am just hopping for the best.  We have had a rough start to the new year with illness.  My son is on his third possibly forth illnesses since the new year.  Anyway, here’s to spring? I had great intentions of posting the photos of our valentines over a couple of days but I am now down to the day….

Here are two I designed using the fun new XOXO thin cut.

This one is using the Adventure Fundamentals.

This one combines Sugar Rush with a little Enchantment Fundamentals and Swan Lake.  I also used the new Heart thin cuts and XOXO thin cuts.

Happy Crafting!
