Fox Flip-Up

Fox Flip Up

Hi All!

Today I’m using the new Simon Says Stamp Big Picture Book Fox. They have a lot of these little critter dies, but this one is much larger than what they typically sell. I decided to also create a body so that the fox would form the front part of my card base. Here is a look from the side:

I used Stampin’ Up! Wild Wasabi cardstock for the base. I keep forgetting that this color has been retired. Seems like a bad decision.

Enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    Darlene, I love your idea with this card, and how you executed it! Such a cool way to add a body to your fox head. Love the colors you chose, too. Thanks so much for sharing, as always, and y’all have a great weekend! 😺 ~ Andrea

    a very cute idea, the end result is great. I don’t have that huge die but am going to try it with something else I have. I can see it working with vases of flowers thanks for the inspiration

    SO adorable. I especially love the trick of using the right half of his body to trace his left half so it would be the exact same. Why the heck can’t I think of stuff like that. It seems SO simple and logical but I would NEVER have thought of it. Thanks, Darlene.
    One question: why do they call these the “picture book” dies??
    Lordy, I am sure it is a simple answer but I don’t know it.

      Good question. I guess because it looks like a fox you might find in a kids storybook?

    Darlene, you always give me great ideas with your wonderfully creative cards. This card is no exception. I really love it for anyone but especially for children. I’m going to try it with my Neat & Tangled Panda Die and use my MFT Happy Panda stamp set for the bamboo. Since Pandas have no necks, I will be able to make the body of the Panda even easier than you made the Fox’s body (smile). Thanks for inspiring me again!

    My grandson’s school mascot is a fox–hoping to make a card like yours for him soon! (SSS is all sold out of the die at the moment though….) Thanks for the super cute idea!!
