Lili of the Valley challenge card

This is my card for this week's Lili of the Valley blog challenge. The theme of this week's challenge is 'Punch It Up'. Therefore I have used cutting dies and a variety of punches to make my card.

I begun by stamping the 'Armchair Bear' image three times on smooth white card. I coloured in the images with ProMarkers. I cut out the main image and the frame with Labels fifteen Nestie cutting die. I cut out sections of the other two images and added them to the main image with foam pads.

I cut panels of blue gingham, blue spotty and white paper for the background. I punched the edges with my Stampin' Up eyelet punch. I added these onto a panel of dark blue card. I punched four photo corners with my Stampin' Up punch. I added all these to a square card blank.

I attached a strip of blue ribbon across the card. I added the stamped bear image to the card. I tied ribbon through two button and added these to the card with glue dots. I punched an oval of dark blue card and attached a Craftwork Cards oval greeting to it. To finish the card I added white faux stitching.
