Noel Card version 2
So once again I printed and cut out the little Forever friends Teddy. I glittered their hats this time with a Rich Brown Glitter. Glazed the letters and then glued Rich Brown Glitter to them once the glaze was dry. (the glitter is from papermania)
I am so glad that I have two of these trays. Glitter is so messy. I dust my trays with talcum powder then give them a good thump to get rid of the excess talc before using glitter or embossing powders. It really does help when it comes to putting the excess back in their respective containers.
I knew that I wanted to mute the white of the background card and I had a perfect piece of patterned Vellum just right for this which I made into a wraparound for the card. I attached the vellum to the front of the card with 4 spaced out pieces of Strong Double Sided Tape (these will be hidden with the toppers).
Using two square dies I matted my little teddies onto first White Card and then onto Rich Brown Glitter Card that matches the Glitter that I had used on the letters and hats. I then attached these to the vellum. I put in my insert and then I had to make a custom envelope to fit the card. When the card stands open the Ribbon (obviously) stays with the back piece of the card therefore adding a bit of bling to the edge of the insert. I like this effect and have used it before just not on a card this long!
I will be entering this into:
Happy crafting everyone!
