Birthday Card using a Vday Image

Hello fellow crafters, who says you can't use other types of images for birthday cards! Today I've taken this cute little raccoon who I thought upon coloring was a red panda (apparently I don't know my animals!)lol.  I think hearts are pretty universal so used this image for a birthday card, and his picked something special just for you on your birthday!

Materials used:

Kitty Bee Designs - A Bowl of Hearts Raccoon Valentine
Simon Says Stamps - Sketch Ranunculus (little circles)
Zing - gold embossing powder
Stickles - diamond
vellum


I used copic markers to give a touch of color to the raccoon on the pattern paper and to color in the larger racoon.  I hate covering up beautiful background paper, so what better to use then vellum so it still shows through!

For just the background paper I used my silhouette studio and created a rectangle the same size my card would be. I then sized the raccoon and replicated him.  From there it was just a matter of  twisting and turning him so he wouldn't be so uniform on the paper.


For the inside I just stamped a simple happy birthday to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
