Today I have a card which is for my Step-Sister's daughter who is our God Daughter who passed her driving test last week.
As she absolutely loves anything to do with Tatty Teddy this was an obvious choice, the image was printed from my computer from pre-loaded docrafts CD Rom software and was pre-coloured so this determined the colours for the rest of the card. I used a lemon pearlescent pre-scored card, which had been cut down from an A5 size (I don't like big cards), I then used a piece of aqua pearlescent card as a mat and another piece of the lemon card which I embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then used a piece of aqua ribbon from my ribbon scraps box tied into a bow before mounting the Tatty Teddy image which had been cut out with a Nestabilities circle die onto a pearlescent aqua scallop edged mat, again from one of those pre-die cut sheets. The card was then finished off with a sentiment stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from the Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Frame-It' set and this was again adhered to an aqua mat. The banner shape was made using a square punch and I would like to say a very big thank you to Debby for this tip on her blog. I then sat back and looked at my card and felt it was a bit unbalanced to I used three aqua flower brads to finish it off.
I do apologise for the photo quality, I am experimenting with my new camera which has so many buttons and menu systems it is totally confusing - must try harder!
