Teddy Bear: My Heart Sings


 This dynamic card by designer Carrie Walz will deliver your message of love with a smile!

The patterned papers are selected and coordinated by color and scale of the pattern. The single color, from the same collection, makes them all cohesive. The scale of the patterns is varied, making them work together well. There’s one very small print, one medium print, and one larger one. This keeps the design balanced.

All of the design elements are flat paper, so the bow and stick pin add an important element of dimension and a needed soft touch to the design, making it feel really finished and pulled together.

Supplies | Cardstock: We R Memory Keepers (Black Widow Potion, Crazy for You White). Patterned Paper: Ruby Rock-It Bella Fundamentals (Pink Fusion Weave, Pink Fusion Reel, Pink Fusion Thread). Ribbon: May Arts. Embellishments: Ruby Rock-It (Narratives, DIY Decoupage), Momenta (Black Tie Embossed Message, Clear Layered Black and White Flower Stickers), Little Yellow Bicycle (Clothesline Flower Stick Pins).

Designer: Carrie Walz
