This is a birthday card I made for my brother-in-law - hope he likes it :-)
The main image is Wellington Bear by Docrafts UK and came on a diecut sheet so all I had to do was carefully pop out the pieces, trim any daggy bits off then put them together using dimensionals. We call this technique papertole here in Australia but decoupage if you are in the UK. The rust-coloured designer paper is by Lili of the Valley (UK) from their 8" x 8" paper pad - Crab Apple Lane - Country Gent - designed by and copyright to Mary Fran of NitWit Collections. I think Wellington looks so cute the way he is hiding in the mailbox with the presents!
The sentiment was also part of the diecut sheet which I layered onto the same LOTV designer paper and then popped up on dimensionals. I punched a heart from the same designer paper using a Martha Stewart Looped Heart edge punch ie: it is the leftover punched heart, which I decided to add to balance the sentiment panel.
The bottom panel has one edge punched using my Fiskars Postage Stamp border punch (seemed so appropriate with the postbox!). The designer paper on this panel is from my 6" x 6" Docrafts Wellington Bear paper pad. I tied on some brown/white twine which I bought on Etsy ages ago and was hand-dyed by the seller. I added some Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.
All layers have been matted with a 1/8" border using my Perfect Layers Tools and any rounded corners were done with my Stampin' Up corner punch.
Finished size is approximately imperial 8-1/4" tall x 3-13/16" wide or 208mm x 97mm metric - which means the card fits into a standard DL business sized envelope.
