Handmade Harbour Midweek Papercraft Party – Sweet or Sparkly

This week’s theme at Handmade Harbour is ‘Sweet or Sparkly’ – I have made a card which is both!

Pair of Foxes card


I used the ‘Pair of Foxes’ digistamp which is available here. I printed it twice and fussy cut the foxes after colouring with my Promarkers. I used Terracotta, Henna, March Hare, Caramel, Warm Grey 3 for the foxes and April shower, Denim Blue for the background.

I die cut the background with a Nellie’s Frames circle die then layered the foxes on top with 3d foam.

I decided to keep going with the circle theme and used some HOTP backing paper (which I have had for years and don’t think I will ever run out of, even if I use it on every project I ever make!) and added a HOTP sentiment (again die cutting into a circle). I cut a larger circle ‘frame’ from some light brown card and stuck that around the fox image. Finally I added some Paprika Stickles to the heart design on the sentiment for my ‘sparkle’.



We hope to see your entries into the challenge this week, the winners get to choose some digis from the Handmade Harbour store!

  5. What an absolutely darling card! I love the extra love and care that went into coloring, cutting, and popping up the foxes – it’s those extra touches that make a card marvelous and a work of the heart. I also have to admit I really like how the patterned paper makes them stand out and the Stickles color reinforced the shades of the foxes (to me) and added another little loving touch. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Opus Gluei, I hope we are able to get you back for more challenges, I like your style very much!
