Gingham DSP - I used Garden Green from Toile Tidings - 1 x 5/12 strip

Open card flat. Stamp racoon in bottom right corner of front using Stays on Jet Black ink. Stamp a hat onto the top of the racoon's head in the same ink. Color the racoon very lightly in gray using an aqua painter and slate gray ink. Color the tail in black marker alternating with the grey. Squeeze and wipe aqua painter onto paper towel to clean it. Color the log with an aqua painter and crumb cake. Use a Real Red marker to color the hat.
Stamp trees in 2 sizes using Garden Green ink. Stamp off on some of the trees in the back ground. Stamping off - stamping again without reinking. Another way of stamping off is to ink then stamp on scrap paper, then stamp on the card stock without reinking.
Stamp To: and From on one side of the 2 x 4 tag panel. Stamp 2 trees in Garden Green on other side of the tag, stamp a 3rd tree using the stamping off technique (stamp again without reinking).
Punch top of tag with a tag topper punch.
