Furry Felt Critters

Hello!  I have a couple of really cute cards to show you today;  so I hope you like 'cute' because this post is sticky sweet today!  I found these adorable pre-made felt critters at a fabrics and crafts store and fell absolutely in love with them.  We have a lot of foxes and coons where we live, and although the farmers hate them, I love them!  The foxes especially are so pretty, and when I see a baby raccoon I just swoon.  I know they can both wreck havoc to livestock and plants, but they are so pretty you just have to forgive them! 

For my first card, I actually cased this card HERE.  I loved how the artist had the stamped fox image peeking through the hole, but instead of using a wood grain embossing folder like she did, I used some printed Kraft paper from DCWV instead.  I felt it was bolder and the colors in the grain went well with the fox.  I also moved the sentiment.

 Here is the inside of the card.  To make the card I simply used a Spellbinder's Nestability in both the printed card stock and the card base to cut a small hole.  Then I adhered the fox to the inside of the card.  I left a sentiment out of the inside so that I can use the card for just about any event that comes up.
 Here's a close up of this sweetie.
 For my next card, I created a little scene for my sleepy raccoon using my Cricut Expression and a Darice Cloud embossing folder.  I embossed the tree truck with a wood grain embossing folder and cut the grass with a Fiskars Border Punch.  The sentiment was also cut with the Cricut.  I stamped leaves on the trees so that it didn't look so boring.
 And here is a close up of this cutie.
I hope these furry felt critters brought a smile to your face today.  They certainly do for me!

Have a great day!  Amy
