We all relate certain events with summer and for me one of those is The Tour de France. Since I was a child I’ve seen my dad watching The Tour on tv after lunch, or should I say taking a nap while The Tour was on tv 😀

So the card I’m showing you today is totally inspired by The Tour. I used Mama Elephant “Rowdy Raccoons” stamp set, because the raccoon riding a bike is perfect for this card, as well as the racoon waving the pennant.

I colored the raccoons with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. I inked the background with Distress Inks using a stencil to make the brick wall. I used Lawn Fawn “Wonderful Window” die and placed the racoon peeking through it, cheering up to the cyclist, who wears the yellow jersey, indeed!! I added some grass using Lawn Fawn “Grassy Border” die.

I used Waffle Flower “Pull Tabs” dies to make an slider mechanism for the raccoon to ride the bike and show he wears the yellow jersey deservedly 🙂  I glued this background panel to a piece of pattern paper from Lawn Fawn “Let’s Polka in the Meadow” paper collection.

I wanted this card to be a pop up card, with the rest of the raccoons wearing the other jerseys. I used a lot of Lawn Fawn dies: Stitched Mountain Borders, Stitched Hillside Borders, Forest Border and Everyday Pop-Ups for making all the layers. I had to measure and cut a lot, but totally worth it! I added the sun from Lawn Fawn “Out of this world” stamp set and the flowers from Lawn Fawn “Manatee-rific” stamp set.

The sentiment is from “Rowdy Raccoons” stamp set, and I think is perfect for this card’s theme.

I’m entering this card into Seven Hills Crafts July Challenge: Let’s Go 3D


and into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Use a Die or/and Punch

I hope you like this card!!

Have an amazing week, and thanks for stopping by!
