Fox+Fern Terrariums

I design and create custom papercuts (www.oddlyrendered.etsy.com) and I'd like to step up my packaging. I have a stamp from MaeMae Paperie that has sort of become my logo and I use it for my business cards. I'd like to create something with a little more depth. Ideally, I would like to create a label that I can use on my Etsy site, as a business card, maybe a sticker for packaging/mailing and perhaps as a stamp in the future.

I'm always inspired by the combination of different fonts and I like the idea of drawing from a vintage razor blade package design since I use an xacto knife in my work and I appreciate the simplicity. 

However, I'm personally also very drawn to botanical flourishes and swirly script. I'm having a hard time choosing which direction to go in! 

Update 5/29

So I completely changed my mind. My sister and I want to have a side job with a creativity aspect this summer so we decided to make and sell terrariums at local craft fairs and farmer's markets. We deliberated forever about company names (Dirty Hoes, Miss Mossy Pants...) and settled on Fox+Fern. These are hangtag first drafts done with sharpies on oaktag. I'm now working on a refined version of the one with the fox on it...would like to see the tail and the fern create more of a circle and work on the sizing of the text. "Fox" is too big and "Fern" needs to be more pronounced. 

Ideally, I'd like to have a simple design that can easily be translated into a logo, possibly with a stamp or linocut. I'm definitely going to make a papercut of it as well!
