This card was created with boatload of inspiration...One, my husband and second son celebrated their birthdays this May. Their birthdays are five days apart. Two, I am trying out Jennifer McGuire's Tulle Window Card technique. I used two of the products she used in her card. Three, have you seen Newton's Nook new release? I haven't gotten over the last release, and here are more products to wish for. I am on a budget crunch. I try to work for the products I would like to add to my collection by joining in blog challenges. Four, Newton's Nook Challenge is on buttons. This is a way of reviving an old product back to the craft scene. I had fun creating this card!
I am giving center stage to the raccoon. The stamp is from Newton's Nook Campfire Tails. I colored the image with Copic markers. I fussy cut the image and lined around the cut image with a black marker. I cut around the raccoon's hands with a craft knife to cover the chips the raccoon is holding on the actual stamp image. I had to cut a part of this, too. I die cut a felt heart using Paper Smooches Hearts Dies. I sewed an American Crafts heart button with gold DMC to the heart. I tucked this in on the arms of the raccoon.
For the front panel, I die cut a window on a wood embossed cardstock. The die is from My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-a-Boo die. I adhered a tulle on the back of this window panel then adhered it to a cream note card.
For the sentiment, I die cut a banner using Lawn Fawn Fancy Folded Banners die. The sentiment is from NN Camfire Tails. I masked a part of the sentiment and stamped it using Versafine Onyx black ink. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I adhered the raccoon and banner on the tulle. I used foam adhesive on the banner to add dimension to it.
I threaded a red DMC to some Pebbles buttons. I adhered this to the corners of the window. I applied clear Spectrum Noir to the banner for some sparkle which unfortunately was not captured in the photo.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
