So this card took me an age to create! I had a sketch drawn out on scrap paper which gave me the basic layout. I wanted a night sky behind the scallop circle frame so sponged some Distress Oxide and Distress Inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock, keeping the lighter color in the center and circling out to the darker colors. I then flicked on some water drops and some shimmer spray and set it aside to dry. I die-cut a panel with the stitched frame in Blueprints 13 and also cut a circle using a Pierced Circle die. The scallop frame was adhered over the top. I took a piece of heat-resistant acetate and white-embossed the sentiment and adhered that to the back of the circle cut-out.
Once the ink-blended panel was dry, I adhered some silver star confetti randomly onto the panel then attached it to the front panel with liquid glue.
All the images were colored with Copics and the bears were dabbed with Coloreless Blender on a piece of towel to give some texture to their fur. All the images were then cut with my Scan n Cut. I do have the dies for the Happy Hedgehogs set, but not for the Birthday Bears so had to keep all the cutting consistent. Just for interest's sake, there are 18 individual leaves - colored to look like autumn leaves, 5 mushrooms and 2 acorns around the 2 bears 😃I went around the outside of each cut image with a black marker and also added Black Glaze pen to the bears' eyes. The two acorns and the two bears are all popped up on foam tape, The rest of the images are adhered directly to the card.
