Wild Thing......{TAWS}

Good Morning Everyone!!
It is my DT day over at
The Alley Way Stamps
and I have a card to share using the new release stamp set for this month~
Deep in the Woods

I just LOVE this set and all the adorable images on here and could not wait to share another card using this time the cutie Raccoon...Here it is....hope you like it :)
I wanted to make it look like the raccoon was peeking out of the tree so I started with my kraft cardstock and embossed it using the distressed striped folder. Next I punched out a 2" circle and stamped my image on a piece of white cardstock...knowing that it was going to be placed behind the circle cutout. I colored him using my copics and then stamped and colored another image so I could pop up his head and tail
You can see in this picture how the 2 popped up pieces of him look...so cute right??!?!
Finally to finish my card up I used a Studio Calico wood piece and stamped my sentiment on it....hot glued it down and then tied some Midnight Trendy Twine  in a bow through a button from my stash.
So there you have it..I really hope you have enjoyed my card!!
I know I LOVED making this one!!
Thanks so very much for popping in and have a GREAT day!!
