Birthday Raccoon

Hi there. I have a confession to make – I think I’m addicted to raccoons……

I don’t suppose it’s a really, really bad addiction, but this is the second card in as many days I’ve posted with a raccoon as the main image.

This is for the Seize The Birthday Challenge, with the theme of birthday with the optional twist of black and white:

I recently received this die set from MFT called ‘Raccoon Cutie’ – and isn’t it named appropriately? I actually made two raccoons – as I cut everything from white, then everything from black, and stuck everything together – but I did have to go to MFT web site to figure each piece out!

The sentiment is also from an MFT stamp set, and I wanted a big and bold sentiment go go with the big and bold raccoon. And – you guessed it – I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on top of the embossed background, which was the Lawn Fawn ‘Quilted Backdrop‘.

Oh well – it certainly adds a certain something – just not sure what! I did think of doing a banner strip, but it just didn’t look right, so I left it as it was.

The other addition – googly eyes. I have had these for a while and just never got around to using them – here was my chance……..you can see on the white raccoon version where I put the eyes in a different place to what is outlined on the actual die – but I didn’t see that until I took the photo – who knew? πŸ™‚
