Hope your week has started off well. I’m super happy with how this card came out and excited to share it with you! When I saw that Love Bandit stamp set I had to grab it right away. So let’s jump in…
Here are some stills for you:
I was going for as much realism as I could make here and I’m happy with the resulting file shape. (As real as a case file on a raccoon could be, lol.)
I had to fuss a bit to try and make this look full without looking too silly. I think when I mail this I’ll try to find some lined pink legal paper to write my letter on and then I’ll staple that on the righthand side over the last photo that way when the recipient lifts it, it’ll reveal the “Be my Valentine” message last.
I’d also like to find some kind of raccoon paw print to stamp on that grid paper…
He’s so sweet. How could anyone resist those eyes?!?
I don’t have an envelope liner die for 5×7 envelopes so I just made my own. I’ll be doing a video on this for my 5 Minute Tutorial Series coming soon.
Thanks so much for stopping by. xoxo, Sarah
