Moira's Birthday card
Another card from me and its another Tatty Teddy card, I have made it for my crafting friend Moira, its her birthday on 19th May, Happy Birthday Moira!
I started off with a piece of card measuring 9.5 inches by 6 inches and scored in half.
I then got some patterned Tatty Teddy paper and with the long edge along the top I scored at 3, 4 3/4 and 6.5 inches. I then measured in 1 1/4 inch in from the top and also the bottom on the centre fold line and then measured outwards 1 1/2 inch on both sides of centre fold. I cut both lines along top and bottom of the rectangle (horizontal lines) and scored the vertical lines, I am sure if you look at the photo of the inside you will see what I mean, I then punched both sides with a Martha Stewart punch which leaves little scallops and edged with Glitterations.
I stamped the teddy image twice using a Tatty Teddy clear stamp and coloured his nose and patches with Promarkers, then stuck invisable thread to the back and then stuck the other image onto the back to hide the thread. The ends of the thread were then attached to the back of the main insert part.
I cut the name Moira out with my Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet set and stuck to the left hand side, added a sentiment which I cut out with my oval nesties and matted onto a fancy tag cut using a Spellbinders fancy tag die and added 2 dot glitterations on the sides.
I have decorated the front with an image from the Tatty Teddy Decoupage pack and edged this with silver glitterations, and then matted onto blue card, then stuck onto patterned paper and blue card edged in silver glitterations with 3d foam pads. I have also edged the sentiment with glitterations too.
I hope she is going to like it.
