Robbie the Raccoon Card Tutorial

Hi everyone, Happy Monday Morning! This is Bev and today we are welcoming Allison Arbour and Robbie the Raccoon to our blog. Allison has put together this playful raccoon card and a tutorial to go with it. I hope her project and tutorial inspire you to make some cute raccoon projects of your own! Here's Allison...


Today I'm going to show you how to create this cute card using the Robbie the Raccoon Stamp Set, the matching Robbie the Raccoon Crafting Dies and the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies.

Step 1: I stamped Robbie and the sentiment on a white piece of cardstock. I used Versafine ink, and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. Using Copic markers (colors W1, W3,W5, & R11) I colored Robbie in, then die cut him using the matching die. Then I cut out the sentiment using the smallest label in the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies.

Step 2: Next I die cut the largest label from a piece of white cardstock. I used the negative space as a frame for the card and stamped Robbie’s feet in Versafine ink. I heat embossed the feet using clear embossing powder.

Step 3: Next I lightly watercolored the label with Distress Inks. I used Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber.

Step 4: Finally, I glued the watercolor panel down to the card base. I popped up the sentiment and frame using foam tape to add dimension. Then I cut a small slit between Robbie’s tail and body so that I could wrap his tail around the bottom of the frame. I added a drop of glue to keep Robbie in place and a piece of foam tape behind his head to prop it up.
