‘The Making Of A Card’ Festive Series #8 Christmas Raccoon Card

For my eighth and final ‘The Making Of A Card’ Festive Series of 2018, I revisited my little raccoon friend from the Mama Elephant ‘Three Amigos’ stamp set along with some Christmas themed printed paper.

Using some simple masking, I added a Santa hat from the Stampers Anonymous Mini Crazy Birds stamp set to my raccoon and coloured it all in using the warm gray range of Copic markers before finishing it off with a little Wink Of Stella clear shimmer on the hat.

I then used some Christmas themed printed paper which I cut to 5 1/2in x 4 1/14 using the largest stitched border die from the Mama Elephant ‘Peek A Frame’ set and cut a circle out using the Sizzix ‘Concentric Circles’ set.

To create the border on the inside of the circle I did some ink blending before cutting them out with the same concentric circle die.

Then I simply attached the printed paper first to a card base I cut and scored before gluing on the blended circle border. I added the raccoon character using some foam squares to give some dimension. And that’s it! I hope you like it!
