I love this teddy bear image and have utilized it to create several cards.
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 dark grey cardstock and layered it with an embossed light teal cardstock. To add interest to the card I incorporated a half round of dark teal paper with a circular wrought iron pattern and matted it on dark grey and light teal cardstocks.
For the focal point of the card I stamped an adorable teddy bear on a round of white cardstock and hand colored it using prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I sponged ink around the teddy bear to add depth and coordinate with the card background. I matted the image on light teal and dark grey cardstocks.
To add a little pizzazz I attached three grey buttons embellished with light teal ribbon.
For the inside panel I printed the sentiment “I Love You Bear-y Much” on light teal cardstock. I added a band of embossed light teal cardstock matted with dark grey cardstock and topped it off with a medallion of the wrought iron patterned paper.
I also created an envelope from heavy white cover stock and printed an image of sweet Teddy’s face in the lower left corner.
