I'm currently on a teddy bear kick. This is one of the cards that I have made featuring a teddy bear image.
CARD (5 1/8” wide by 6.5” tall)
Front Image: Teddy bear
Front Sentiment: none
Inside Sentiment: “I Love You Bear-y Much”
I created the base card from cheddar yellow cardstock and layered it with an embossed cream cardstock. To add interest to the card I incorporated a triangle of brown paper with a tiled pattern and matted it on cheddar yellow cardstock.
For the focal point of the card I stamped an adorable teddy bear on a square of white cardstock and hand colored it using colored pencils and gamsol. I sponged ink around the teddy bear to add depth and coordinate with the card background. I matted the image on cheddar yellow cardstock.
To add that extra touch of pizzazz I attached three cheddar yellow buttons embellished with brown ribbon.
For the inside panel I printed the sentiment “I Love You Bear-y Much” on cream cardstock. I adorned it with a band of cheddar cardstock topped off with three tiles cut from the patterned paper.
I also constructed an envelope from heavy white cover stock and printed an image of sweet Teddy’s face in the lower left corner.
