Cozy Critters for The Paper Players


The talented Claire at The Paper Players has the perfect challenge for this busy Thanksgiving week: Clean and Simple Christmas.  I had all types of clean and simple designs floating through my head. Most of them were clean and elegant.  Surprisingly enough, I opted for clean and cute, and inked up the Cozy Critters Host Set for the first time. I hope you enjoy today’s effort!


The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
When folded, this card measures 4-1/4″ wide x 5-1/2″ tall.

  • Fox on a box! I stamped the Present from Cozy Critters three times: Emerald Envy, Real Red, Daffodil Delight. I then cut off the Real Red lid and adhered it to the Emerald Envy image.  I did the same with the Daffodil Delight ribbon.  The result has so much dimension!


  • Fox in a hat!  I inked up the Fox from Cozy Critters with Calypso Coral ink, and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  I repeated this two more times, for a total of three foxes.  Fox #1, I snipped out with Paper Snips.  The body of Fox #2 was punched out with the Fox Builder Punch, and popped atop Fox #1 with dimensionals. I snipped out the head of Fox #3, and also added it Fox #1.  For Santa’s hat, I used the Hat from Jolly Friends, while the Tail is courtesy of the Foxy Friends set.


  • Stitches and snowflakes! The Snowflake background, from Christmas Pines, was inked in Soft Sky. What a sweetly subtle background it makes for the Present, which was cut out using an Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.


Wouldn’t this make an adorable card for a child? I thought it would.  But when my 27-year-old son saw it, his eyes lit up.  He has a thing for foxes…so Brady, I guess this one will be yours!
