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...
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.
Thanks so much for sharing your Robbie the Raccoon card with us, Allison!
