Lil' Raccoon Punch Art Birthday Card

Pin It Now! Here's a cutie that I put together for my nephew's birthday, who is an avid raccoon hunter as of late.  Seems we have an abundance of these little guys around here. Including on my craft room desk!
Don't worry, this one's pretty tame. I created him using a couple of others for inspiration, THIS ONE by Rachel Ricks, and THIS VIDEO by Kimberly Morris.  Added my own flair and a little chevron tail. 
He's holding his own little birthday greeting, and his hands are punched from the Artisan Label Punch used for the Label Love greeting, cut on an angle.  I just love his bright, "cutie eyes", as my son calls them!
I only made one small mistake...I angled his chevron tail out too far, and he wouldn't quite fit in the envelope. So I simply slit a hole in it to let it poke out!  It was a hand delivered card, so you can imagine everyone guessing what was in it, and the curious looks at the party!

Have a blessed and creative day ~Erika

  2. That is an absolutely ADORABLE card! I think the tail poking out of the envelope is the best part! TFS!
