VIDEO | MFT Simple Scene Building + Giveaway

Hello there, I am back today to share a card and video using My Favorite Things products. MFT kindly sent me some of their September 2018 release and are also sponsoring the giveaway today too (more on that below). The Friendly Raccoons set caught my eye straight away, so I thought I would use that on my card today.
I started off by embossing one of the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax dies on to a 5.5" x 4.25" panel of white cardstock. This gives the impression of another layer, without having an actual layer. I then masked off the edges of the panel, and using the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, I blended on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create the sky. I then took the Grassy Edges Stencil and created grass with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. The post-it tape masks were then removed.

I took one of the raccoons from the set, along with one of the trees and stamped these on to white cardstock with Extreme Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and die cut with the coordinating Die-namics dies.

I took the 'just a note' sentiment from the Birdie Brown Greetings Galore Stamp Set and stamped this at the top of the panel with more Extreme Black Ink. The panel was then added to a white A2 card base. The tree was added on top with thin foam squares and the raccoon with thicker foam squares. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights and black glaze pen to the raccoon's eyes and nose.
Here is a look at how I made the card:
