The current challenge at The Teddy Bo Blog is “Red, White & Blue — and bling”. I wanted to enter this challenge but I wanted to do something a bit different from the “Royal” theme. I thought that this Teddy Bea was cute and wanted to use her. “idea ” She has an envelope in her hand and airmail envelopes had red, white and blue stripes around the border. So here is my card –
I stamped the card base with a Hero Arts cling stamp “old letter”. Next I cut the border off an old airmail enveloped which I have stored away since I was a teenager and used to have “pen pals”. (:lol: I knew it would come in handy one day). I found these great little vintage digital envelopes on Etsy at “Vintage by me”. The red, white & blue twine was in my stash.
Teddy Bea is constructed – yes constructed or is it deconstructed? – using this tutorial by Mandi-Lee on Copic Oz.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend.
Bye for now,
