If You Go Down to the Woods.......

I'm in love with the new Xcut Build a Scene dies, I treated myself to the Woodland set and Mum bought the Street set, I had itchy fingers to play, here's the woodland card I came up with.
 I used all the dies in the set plus Memory Box deer and tiny birds dies, the fox comes with the set, I added a little bit of white to his fur with a coloured pencil.  On the top layer, I stamped some foliage with Clarity stamps, using Distress Inks and Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.  All the layers are raised up on fairly thick foam tape to give a real feeling of depth, which I've added to by using five different shades of green, darkening as you move deeper into the woods.

    Love your card! have only just seen theses die cuts on Pinterest and being 4 years old, I don't seem to be able to get one anywhere here in Australia or so far, online. Any suggestions. Know anyone with one to sell. I have Paypal.
