not your mama's card

we're pushing the envelope this week at shopping our stash by making cards that are... ahem... shall we say verging on inappropriate? heck, feel free to dive right in and be completely inappropriate, off-color, a little risque... or a lot?! anything goes this week. and we promise not to tell your mama! here's what i made:

patterned paper: basic grey, glitz design, october afternoon, amy tangerine/american crafts, creative imaginations; fox brad: eyelet outlet; alphabet stamps: freckled fawn; glossy white kromekote: the paper cut; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

challenges like this always stump me for a bit. because whereas my everyday conversation is often R-rated, my cards tend to be pretty clean cut for some reason. luckily i remembered that i had some adorable eyelet outlet fox brads, and there's nothing more fun than a pun, for fox sake, is there??! ;)

since i've double framed said foxy dude AND each frame is riding on a square of foam tape for added dimension, i'm jumping in with the simon says stamp wednesday challenge blog's current theme: pop it up!

need more inspiration? the SOS gang have lots of it, just like always. why not hop over and check it out, darlings? ♥


  1. This is great!!! I love that little fox brad that works perfectly with the sentiment :) I love me a good snarky card! Great papers and fun design too!

  2. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Lauren, I love this card, (shh!! but I kind of say this sometimes, when the Cowboys are loosing).
