Teddy Bears All Lined Up


Back again and this time with a card for a wee girl, that did not start as an 'ooops' 😀

I started with the pink paper from my stash, and decided to highlight her age by using a red die cut over a gold scalloped oval

The teddy bear stencil was home made using a punch (old and unmarked) and some acetate.  I used tea dye DI over the cream card I laid the stencil on, then drew in their faces, and mounted the panel with a layer of lace on either side

The stamp (my original HB stamp, now discontinued, still going strong after 20 nearly years)  was clear embossed over red ink, then coloured with a gold pen

All the edges of the layers were also wiped over the red ink - Catherine Pooler Rouge, from memory. 

I finished the inside with some gold polka dot washi tape.

What a cute baby girl birthday card Maxine! I love that you are getting more mileage from your punch by making it into a stencil. Clever! The lace is such a pretty touch and I love that you added the birthday number to the scallop. I hope Mum keeps this card for this little one so she can look at her cards once she is older, she will love it! Hugs, Brenda

What a brilliant idea to use acetate to make a stencil with the bear punch. Now it can be used over and over again. Love the way you have coloured them and the faces are exquisite.
I particularly like the way you have highlighted the lettering with that drop shadow. Very nice indeed.
Blessings, Neet xx
