For my project I used paper from the Happy Go Lucky & Lovely Day collections from My Little Shoebox as well as Mandarin twine from The Twinery.
I used various patterns of the paper to die cut the raccoon...pretty colorful don't you think? :) The various colors and patterns were so much fun to put together and create with. Definitely not your typical Father's Day card!
Here you can see the raccoon's hair a little better. I cut a piece of scrap cardstock down to the size of the top of the raccoon's head, covered it with strong adhesive and then layered twine on top of it. Once I attached it to the inside of my card, I gave the raccoon a haircut so the twine hair was fairly even.
Here you can see how the card looks when it is opened up. I scored the bottom of the card so that it folds below where the hair is attached so you don't really see that part at all.
Now you KNOW that there are prizes involved with all of The Twinery's blog hops right? Well, this time is no exception!
