This card is very similar to the one I designed as thank you cards for my shower but in different colours. I haven’t posted it yet because I am hoping to find a magazine looking for interactive cards so I can enter it. It uses much less paper so is ideal for making multiples; the front panel is only held on with the brad in the corner and the whole front panel swings upwards. The aqua is only one layer, not a card base. So 1/2 the amount of aqua cardstock is used compared to a normal card. I forgot about writing on the base, under the focal panel, when I embossed it. Oops! So I guess I will add a layer of copy weight paper when I write in it. My shower ones had unembossed bases so they were easy to write on.

A few details: The scallop at the top edge is the eyelet lace die, I just have it positioned so you can’t see the holes. The socks are made from felt, I just love the fuzzy socks my baby wears so I had to reproduce them as closely as possible for this card. The ribbon is seam binding dyed with Copic Blender Solution and Y21 reinker. If you enlarge the photo, you will see that the brad has tiny stars on it like the yellow shirt DP. The background was inked by swiping the pad across the edges to highlight the embossed pattern. Then I distressed it with Antique Linen ink.

And now for a photo I took a few days ago of my 3 month old Theodore aka Teddy Bear.

This isn’t even edited! I need to warm it up some but otherwise I’m pretty happy with it SOOC (straight out of camera). Isn’t he adorable?!
