Tatty Tatty Teddy...

Morning all!!!

Well fortunately, it has decided not to snow overnight like it was expected to... oooh it's way too early for snow! Brrrrrr..... 

Today, I've decided to share a little Tatty Ted card or two with you, but I've made it even more tatty by distressing the edges a little. 

The finished card I'm quite pleased with. I don't often do distressing, I much prefer the clean look of a perfect card. But I had opted for the Kraft card from Docrafts (LOVE THIS!) and I felt it just needed some inky edges on the paper.

The topper was part of one of the decoupage packs - Me to You with Love... absolutely perfect for any occasion really, and the glittering on the images is just perfect for a bit of glitz!

I inked up the edges first with Artiste ink. This was done with dye inks in Chocolate and Black, then scratched around the edges with a craft knife. Yes.. it was a blunt one. I'm really not safe with a sharp one.. lol.

The ribbon was created with raffia, which is a perfect combination to the kraft card. I made a raffia bow, then took some bakers twine and created another little triple bow, cut the ends and fastened it to a button.

This little card was a very very popular one at my recent demo's.

It is literally around 5cm wide with a little topper stuck to the top. The topper is from the card kit and just simply mounted onto a scallop circle die cut from kraft.

See the glittering on the heart? Just perfect! The raffia this time was knotted a few times, then threaded through the button.

I hope you like these cards... something a little different from my ordinary style.

Happy Crafting everyone!!!
