Raccoon Birthday

  My card this week features the Birch Trees from the Christmas Cheer release and Raccoon Gift from an earlier release. The raccoon was released as a Christmas stamp but I am adding to a Birthday card to add to my stash. I love when I can stretch my stamps and use them for a different occasions! 

    After stamping and colouring with Copic markers, I hand fussy cut the raccoon. I wasn't planning ahead when I coloured the birch trees and didn't colour my edges far enough so I hand cut them as well leaving a bit of a blue border. The birch trees - when coloured "properly" is the perfect size for a background for an A2 size card. Cut first then colour? Noted! 

I used patterned papers I used are from Memory Box and MME and created my layers. Next I masked and stamped my sentiment from a larger sentiment and added it to matching card stock. I glued down the trees and added the raccoon with foam pop dots. The bow is actually quite sparkly in person as I used a silver Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle. 
Some clear but perfectly colour matched glass dots and ribbon finish off my card.
