Raccoon for Dad


This is Anja. I have a short post for you today. I made a simple black&white card for Father's Day. I found this mustache patterned paper and build the card around it.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Mama Raccoon & Baby, Stitched Alphabet, Stitched Numbers, Oval Set),
- Distress Ink Pumice Stone,
- white card base (10,5x15 cm),
- black card stock for background (10x14,5 cm) and die cuts,
- grey and white card stock for die cuts,
- patterned paper for background (9,5x14 cm),
- adhesive foam pads,
- scissors,
- white pen,
- black pen,
- paper glue.

First I die cut the raccoon from white, grey and black card stock. I used Distress Ink to color the edges. I used white and black pen for the eyes. I cut raccoons arm with the scissors, for it to hold the number.

Then I die cut the letters and the numbers. I used Distress Ink to color the edges.

I did the same with the ovals.I used the two largest dies.

I cut the background from black and patterned paper. I used Distress Ink around the patterned paper.

When I had everything colored and cut, I used paper glue to adhere all the pieces to the card. And this is my finished card.

Have a nice Sunday! I'll spend mine on the seaside.
