Falling Leaves Fox Card - Club Scrap

Create an adorable Fox Card with Club Scrap's Falling Leaves collection following the tutorial instructions featured on Splitcoast Stampers.

I made some adjustments based on the tools and supplies I had on hand.

Falling Leaves Fox Card 

Gather a 5.5x8.5 Ivory paper and score horizontally at 4.25" to create a card base. Trim an Orange panel to 3.75x4.25".

Draw two faint pencil lines traced onto the Orange panel. I used the circle guide from a cutting tool.

Cut along the lines with a pair of scissors.

Cut a leaf from Brown paper with the Falling Leaves Die Set. Trim off the stem.

Trim ear shapes from Orange and Ivory papers.

Rough the edges of the Ivory paper with a Paper Distressing Tool to give it the appearance of fur.

Add shading to the paper ears with Club Scrap Earth Ink. Adhere the paper ears together with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator.

Die cut more leaves with a washi tape technique. Layer these leaves with Red leaves cut from the same die.

Add a bit of color to the cheeks with an Ink Applicator Brush. Cut small eye and mouth shapes from slivers of Brown paper with an oval punch.

Make three leaves with the Falling Leaves Stamp Set in Leaf Ink. Fussy cut with scissors and add to back of the leaf cluster.

Create a stamped sentiment from Club Scrap's Scandinavia collection in Earth Ink and layer with a double loop of Falling Leaves twine fiber. Adhere the ears, leaves and sentiment cluster to the front of the card with hot glue. Add white gel pen details to the fox's nose and brown colored pencil freckles to the cheeks.

Let's take another look at the finished card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fabulous Fall Card with Handmade Paper!

Welcome to my stop along the Falling For Handmade Paper Blog Hop! If you arrived from Michele Emerson-Roberts' blog post then you are in the right place. If not, hop on over to the Club Scrap Blog for a complete list of participating bloggers.

Fall Card Tutorial

Create a fall card with lots of lovely layers created with handmade paper and the Club Scrap Falling Leaves collection.

Handmade Paper Pumpkin 

Blend packing paper and Gold Brilliants according to the Arnold Grummer Papermill instructions into pulp. Add scraps of Falling Leaves Red plain paper into the blender. Pulse until the red paper is in approximately 1/4" bits.

Pour the pulp into the mold.

Complete the paper making process and admire the amazing results!

Cut three ovals with a paper punch.

Distress the edges with Tangerine and Earth Hybrid Inks with an Ink Applicator Brush.

Add a bit of Bookbinding Glue from a Needle-tipped Applicator to the back of one of the ovals.

Adhere the first oval onto a second oval as shown.

Add glue to the back of the third oval.

Adhere the third oval centered over the double oval. Embellish with a die cut leaf and torn Brown paper stem.

Set the pumpkin aside to use as an embellishment on the card.

Handmade Paper with Die Cut Inclusions

Prepare the pulp mixture in the blender with paper from junk mail and ferns dried in the Garden Press.

Pour the pulp into the papermill and swirl the Orange die cut leaves into the pulp. Continue the paper making process. The leaves look so cool embedded in the paper fibers!

Tear the paper vertically into a 2" wide strip to use as a border strip on the front of the card.

Layer the torn handmade paper with a torn Orange panel.

Adhere the layered strips onto a Falling Leaves print 4.25x5.5" folded card base.

Adhere pressed fall leaves onto the card with Bookbinding Glue.

Create a double loop of brown Falling Leaves twine fiber and glue to the back of the pumpkin.

Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of handmade paper in Earth Ink.

Let's take a look at the completed card.
