Cottage Cutz Cute Fox

Hi Crafters,
I bought a die recently from Cottage Cutz and couldn't wait to use it, it is so cute. I made a very simply designed card to make the die-cut the focal point. I used a digital background paper from Raspberry Road and a small sentiment stamped on to a cloud die-cut and that was it.


Here's a side view...


The die cuts out the various parts of the fox and using coloured cardstock I pieced them altogether, then I cut out a black silhouette of the whole fox and offset it behind the coloured fox for a shadow. Popped him up on foam pads, added my clouds and sentiment and there you have it, my simple CAS card.
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Cute Card Thursday - #364 Celebrate

Hope you liked my cute, little fox card, I think he's adorable and can see him popping up again soon on a another card.
Well we have brilliant sunshine here at the moment albeit rather chilly and the washing and housework will not do itself so I had better get busy.
 
See you all soon,
Lorraine
