The nearing holiday time has started to cast long shadows. The pace of life has accelerated and there is nearly no time for crafting. There is less light, too, darkness descends early.
I wanted to make a card reflecting this time of year. It is dark, yet even the smallest light gives hope. My card is dark, very dark, but it is a friendly card.
The plant dies are used sideways as to create the impression of trees. They were cut twice, once from orange paper and once from black. Also the fox has been cut twice, once full from white paper and then partially from black paper.
I outlined and highlighted the fox and the branches with a grey acrylics, which I partly wiped off. Then I wrote the text and then fussy-cut.
The lantern was stamped on orange paper and cut out. Dies and the stamp are by Simply Graphic, a French company. They have delightful dies and stamps.
