Me to You Tatty Teddy Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one and has  set you up for the week ahead. On Saturday I made a start on the wedding invitations. Then on Sunday we had an unexpected visit from our daughter and her fiance which was nice. We had lunch together and we were able to discuss more bits and bobs to do with the wedding. There are a surprising amount of things to do and organise.

I did go to the local Craft shop sale it was brilliant and I picked up a few bargains. Then today I treated myself to a copy of Papercraft Essentials Magazine which came with a lovely embossing folder and some cute Panda Stamps. When I got home I had a bit of a play.

Here is the 6" x 6" card I made. I cut of piece of mauve core'dinations card stock to fit the folder and I used the folder from the magazine to emboss it. Then I used a sanding block to reveal some of the core of the card. 

I stamped Tatty Teddy on to water colour card with watering can archival ink. Then he was coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I cut him and the silver mat with some Sue Wilson dies. 

The Happy and Birthday stamps came with the magazine. 

Here are my purchases the most anything cost was £2. I do have the matching dies for the number stamps. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
