Oh Baby!

I got such a nice surprise when I opened my last order from MFT Stamps. THIS image was in there as a gift.  I colored it up right away using my Copic markers and also added some glitter pen to that pink bow on the teddy bear.

I wanted to try something a little different for my card front.  I had in mind a frame and this is what I came up with.  I used a Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle die to cut out the inside of the frame.  Then I used my craft knife to make the rest of the frame.  I trimmed each side to about 3/4".

I could have used pop dots to lift the frame up, but I needed to feed my chipboard addiction anyway.....so I cut out two frames from chipboard just like the decorative one.  Stack, stack, stack and then I had a dimensional frame.

But the frame didn't look great against my background, so out came just a really small brown mat to go behind the frame.

VOILA.  Perfection.

White seam binding bow and I called it done.

Tomorrow I have another project to share with you.  I hope I'll see you then.
