Lili Of The Valley - Armchair Bear

Morning everyone

I'd like to share a card I rarely make these days....a Father's Day card. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to make this type of card for these days, so it was lovely to make one using a sweet Lili Of the Valley digi stamp. When the offer was on I bought the complete Lili Of The Valley digi stamp collection, so now I'm spoilt for choice. 

So for today's card I used Armchair Bear and colour it using Distress re-inkers, pads and pens. I hope you like it. (For sale - £4.50 + P&P - requests by email please )  

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
I cut to size a piece of ombre patterned paper to fit the front of a 6" x 6"card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.  Using my software I imported the bear image and resized it to fit my project. The image was printed onto watercolour card, and die cut into an indented square. The image was then coloured with distress re-inkers, pads and pens.   

The finished scene was mounted on a green square mat then onto a blue scalloped square mat.  Funky foam was added to the back of the completed topper, and then glued to the centre of the card front. To finish the card the word 'dad' was die cut from green and blue card and glued to the front of the card.
