Fox's Friend, Raccoon!

As a follow-up to Friday's card, I wanted to show you another of the adorable animal images you can create with the Foxy Friends stamp set. This card was a birthday greeting for my little grandson, Wyatt, who we have been visiting along with my new little granddaughter, Pippa June, and my daughter and son-in-law.

Since Wyatt is a big city boy, I thought the appropriate animal to make with the Foxy Friends bundle, which includes the Fox Builder Punch for a 10% discount, would be a raccoon, since they have easily adapted to an urban environment. This was so much fun to stamp, punch and assemble!

  • I used a neutral palette of Basic Gray and Sahara Sand, with Real Red as the pop of colour. I really like the combination. The background paper here is from the coordinating A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • There are so many cool elements that you can combine to make the different critters in this set. The eye mask and the stripes for the tail and the little front paws that can be punched out, were just made for the raccoon!
  • I'm kind of in love with the little mushroom images, maybe because they remind me of my dear mother-in-law, who has been gone for nine years already, but who used to collect mushroom trinkets of all kinds.
  • The sentiment is from the Number of Years stamp set. It has the perfect font for a folksy little card like this one. I used some of the other sentiments from this set on the inside of the card.
