winter friends :)

a little early, I know...
but these little guys just had to be made :)
they'll be awesome fun for christmas in july crafting!

So, there are a dozen of these little kraft cardstock tags, each with a different critter ready for winter.  When I first looked through the new catalog, I thought the Foxy Friends stamps would (hopefully) be great with the accessories from the Snow Place set.  And they are!  Just exactly the right sizes!  I had so much fun with these guys.  They took a lot of time and patience with all of the little-ness of pieces, but I love how they came together.

This is how they started.  Flat.  But, of course, they couldn't be left that way!  This was early stage, laying out the different pieces to see who needed which accessory for winter.  (You can see the corner of the grid that I made to try to keep each animal straight.  Very organized little guys.) 
This is the "after" picture (blurry right now - I need to take another photo). But you can definitely get the idea of them.  I used many, many Stampin' Dimensionals to get the layers that I wanted.  All of the ribbons coordinate with the stamps and papers.  Very easy to mix-and-match it all!

Wouldn't these be a fun workshop project?
