Greeting card with teddies and butterflies

I few days ago my order has arrived from the Crafty Individuals. One of the stamps was this sweet pair of teddies: the Two Teds.  I imagined that they were a brother and his big sister. So I made a little card from them. 

I coloured them with Ranger Distress Markers. For the edges I used not just the Ranger Distress Gathered Twigs ink pad but after I added some Ranger Distress Picket Fence Paint too.

I was so happy when I realized that the PaperArtsy has the same shape of butterflies which are on my embossed background (it's from the Sizzix Butterflies&Flowers embossing folder sets by Stephanie Barnard). The butterflies stamp is from PaperArtsy Eclectica Kay Carley 02

The words from Tim Holtz ChitChat Sticker Book.

With this card I would like to enter the following challenges:

Frilly and Funkie - All In The Family

Craft Stamper Magazine TIMI Challenge - Anything Goes

Crafty Cardmakers - Shabby Chic

Crafty Individuals - Minis Challenge

I hope you like it! Happy crafting!


  1. Awww! Adorable card Monika. I hadn't thought about the teds being brother and sister. Such a great idea especially with the text. The addition of the butterflies on the embossed background ties it all together wonderfully. Thank you for playing along with the Crafty Individuals Challenge.
