My niece recently had twins at 32 weeks. They are tiny and still in the NICU, but they are doing well and growing. We are so happy for them. I wanted to create a card that would be perfect for her new little girl and boy so I went looking in the Silhouette Store and found this cute little bear image. I mirrored the image so that they would be facing one another, fused them together to create a card and colored them blue and pink. It turned out cute.
I cut the all the pieces required for images from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock. You could cut them from different colored cardstock, but they look pretty flat when assembled that way. I decided to color all the pieces with Copic Markers (listed below). I added little eyelashes and a hair bow on the girl teddy bear and a bow tie on the bow.
The little bears are hinged at the top and originally I thought that I would only have the cutout be the card, but it was too small, so I decided to add a scalloped rectangle cut from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with on of the Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials rectangles. The bears were adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. The sentiment was die cut four times from the same cardstock using the Sizzix Celebration Die Set and the top layer was colored in an ombre look using the same Copic Markers. I liked this better, but in the end I decided to create cardbase from some colorful cardstock I had in my stash. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the scalloped rectangle and adhered to the cardbase with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
