Di's Birthday Card- cute teddy...

Here's another Tri-fold card! I made this for my sister's birthday. She's very partial to cute stamps and teddies. The teddy stamp and punches are Kaszazz. I coloured the teddy using copics that Di gave me. They are awesome for creating a beautiful shading effect. I used some shimmer cardstock that has been retired from Kaszazz but I had some of. I CB the paper to create that lovely texture. I used the scallop punch for the base of the card - layered always looks good. In each scallop, I put some little sticky bling. The rest is quite self explanatory. The only hint I have when making cards like this, is, use magic mount for the front(scallop) section so the card resists moving forward.
These cards are really fun to make. All you do is,with the card in a landscape position, score about 1 " on the right side of the white card, fold it on the score. Then fold the actual card to the 1" score line. Have a second piece ready, size 3 .5" by width of card. Adhere to the 1"fold.
I hope these instructions are good enough. Give it a try and email me your beautiful cards.
I"ll post them on the blog and then do a little draw for some FREE STUFF !!
Entries must be in by 29th August.
Happy Creating!
