MFT & Friends – Friendly Fox and Raccoon Cutie

Hello!

I’m so excited to be an MFT friend today to share a project made using a newly release product! If you have seen the new Raccoon Cutie die in action, I hope you’ll enjoy today’s card – which also features the Friendly Fox from January!

I love these die-cut critters so much that I had to make a card with BOTH and there’s no way to fit them both on an A2-sized card so I’ve created a slimline card today. This card is 4×8.5 folded and fits nicely in a #10 envelope with some space on the sides. If you like them even slimmer (like 3.5×8.5) – they will fit perfectly in a #9 envelope. Just some info for you there, if you’re interested in slimline cards. 🙂

I die-cute the sweet critters using cardstock that I currently own – but you can easily use what you have. I think it’s all about blending each piece with darker colors to add depth and dimension to your critters. I do have MFT ink – so I used it for my critters.

On the Raccoon Cutie, I used Grout Gray ink, to add some color to the face; Cement Gray to add color to the body, arm and tail; and Steel Blue to add color to the eyes and darker parts of the tail.

For the adorable Friendly Fox, I added Persimmon ink to the body and used what was left on my blending tool to add a small amount of it also on the tail and face. Both critters have Pink Lemonade ink on their cheeks and ears.

After assembling the critters, I highlighted them with white gel accents. Then I created a background which is made using a single 3.75×8.25 white card panel, sized to mat the card base. I ink-blended it using the Clouds Stencil and Grassy Fields die (which I die-cut on strong cardstock to use as a stencil). The balloons are die-cut from the Birthday Balloons die set and colored them with Copic markers (V000, BG11, Y00). The sentiment is from the Happy Hippos stamp set.

I really hope you enjoyed this card! Thank you all for joining me today!
