Teddy Bear Birthday Card


Here's the birthday card I made for my niece, who is turning eight next week.  To make the card base, I took a cut from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge and sized it at 5 1/2".  I then duplicated it, flipped the copy, and overlapped the two enough to make the entire width 8 1/2".  After welding the two together, I cut it and layered it with a piece of aqua cardstock and some patterned paper.


The adorable teddy bear is cut at 3 1/2" from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  Her accessories are all part of the same cut, but I changed the clothing by pulling the dress from a different bear.  Her face is a Peachy Keen stamp, and I accessorized her with some i-rock gems.


To make the sentiment, I die cut a banner from the My Creative Time Vintage Label Dies and added a sentiment from Vintage Sentiments.  A Fancy Pants button and green hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique were the finishing touches!
