Foxes in a stocking

Hello everyone!

Today I have another christmas card to share and I used quite a few new items on it:

Those papers by Pion Design I used here are just beautiful. I used one with snowflakes printed on the edge/corners in the background, trying not to fully cover the snowflakes with the rest of my papers and decorations. 

On top of that I've added a rectangle from a solid red paper and then one with a hearts print. It's acutally the same paper - I've been using both sides of it.

Across the card I've added a border using the Landscape die, putting a piece of a banner cut from the borders desinger's paper by Pion Design on top of one side.

And here are the cute foxes by Wild Rose Studio. I was afraid the reddish orange/brown I used to color the foxes in would not look good with the dark red, but I think it actually does.

The image was colored in with Copics.

On the bottom left of my card I've added a few embellishments. I went with one of the mistletoe branches by Scrapiniec, a pine cone and a fabric flower here. The flower was simply cut from a piece of lace on which it was sewn for decorations.

Above the decorations I added some pine trees. They were cut from corrugated paper and I used white Gesso to add some snow. The Gesso was also used on the edges of all the designer's papers.

I also wanted to add a touch of green to my card, since there is some in the image. I don't really like the traditional christmas color combination of  red and green, but just a hint of green with lots of reds is fine with me. So I've cut one of the smaller tags from the Tags paper by Pion Design and tucked it under the trees. To the top of the tag I've added a bow from twine and also tied one of the little christmas charms to it. The deer head just fit so perfectly to the woods and foxes.

Have a happy sunday everyone!
Hugs, Kathrin
