Teddy Bear Card with Trendy Twine

Hey Crafty Friends-

I'm back with another great Trendy Twine project! I decided after bringing you a bigger project in the beginning of the month I would create a simple card that can be put together in no time at all. This card features Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine which is such a great color to have in your craft closet.

 I started with a Kraft cardstock base measuring 4" x 11" and folded it in half. The corners were rounded and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The patterned paper was cut at approximately 3.5" x 3", the corners were rounded and the edges inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The doily is 4" which I cut in half. Chocolate Sprinkles twine was woven though the doily. The paper and doily were glued directly to the card base and the seam was covered with Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip polka dot ribbon. The bear was cut from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge at 3" and inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. Kraft cardstock was layered underneath and google eyes were added. I applied stickles around the ears, nose, and tummy for a little added sparkle. He was attached to the card popped up on foam dots. The balloons are coordinating color buttons that I tied with the twine then glued to the bears hand. A double twine bow was then added. And to finish it off "smile" was stamped in the bottom right corner.
