Last Friday was my Great Granddaughter's 2nd birthday and this is the card I made for her. This sweet little teddy is from LOTV, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto a snippet of white card and coloured with Promarkers. All of the papers are LOTV as well, from the same pad, Bonnets and Bowties, I think. Having coloured it I die cut the image with a Spellbinders Exquisite Circles die, and then using the same die cut it from the pink paper. I then stuck them together offsetting them slightly so that the pink showed to one side. My base card is a 15cm square and I cut a piece of thin scrap card just very slightly smaller to make the background on as I wanted to wrap the ribbon around it and thought it needed to be a bit more substantial than the paper. The pink patterned paper is cut along the edge with a Britania die and the top border of the check pattern cut with the scallop edge on my paper cutter. I layered the papers onto the scrap card and secured the ribbon at the back before sticking the whole panel onto the card. The image was fixed in place with thin foam tape and a short piece of ribbon tied around the ribbon band. The greeting is cut with Britannia dies in three layers, which was made easier with the use of a Stick It sheet. Still a bit fiddly though. Once the layers were joined together I gave them a coat of Glossy Accents and when dry added them to the card.
I am taking this over to Pixies Snippets Playground, I used a snippet of white card for the stamping and the checked paper was a snippet as well. There is a great prize on offer if you fancy having a go, you just need to use at least one snippet in your project to enter. I'll see you there.
Thanks for dropping in and for your comments which I really appreciate.
