What does the Fox say?
I started today's card as a joke. The school has been playing that awful fox song during P.E. and the kids have been getting a kick out of it. I was going to surprise them by putting a couple of fox cards in their lunch boxes.
My plan fell through when they heard that I was cutting and assembling a fox.
"Oh Mom! You know about the fox too?", they exclaimed.
Yes, my dears, your mother is quite up-to-date with the Billboard charts, thank you very much. By the way, for those of you who have not heard of What Does the Fox Say?, click HERE to see it although I should warn you that once you click the Play button, you can never un-see or un-hear it. *shudder*
Anyway, let's get back to my card. This is what the Silhouette Studio (Designer Ed) virtual mat looks like once I have finished designing it. Even though the card base was printed, I didn't add registrations marks for the Cameo to do the cutting. This is because it is not a shaped card and I could easily cut the rectangle shape with my paper trimmer instead.
Here's the resulting card..
..and the (printed) inside:
Even though the kids found out about my fox card, I still plan on putting another version of these in their lunch boxes. If you promise not to tell the kids, I'll share my secret with you- I'm going to make a "Fish Goes Blub" or "Elephant Goes Toot" card for them.
I bet they wouldn't be expecting that! :-)
