Cuddly Buddly Ruby Wedding Anniversary Card

I made this Ruby Wedding Anniversary card for Carol & Robin. Cute bears are not normally my thing but Carol loves cute stuff, especially teddies so I thought this image was perfect. I coloured it using Coloursoft pencils and Zest-It solvent - but I used a Koh-i-noor metallic gold pencil for the cork on the champagne bottle.

Nesties were used for the image and layer. I embossed the white circle and then ran Stickles Crystal glitter glue around the edge. The red layer was popped up. White candy dots were added to the red Nestie shape. The embossed swirly background was made with a Sizzix Texture plate. I like these for larger square cards where CB embossing folders are not big enough - although you don't get quite as deep an impression.

I printed the sentiment from the PC using the Hardwood LP Std font and the RGB colour codes for SU! Real Red. I added a die cut heart to the sentiment. EK Success flower punches and Sizzix Decorative Strip die cuts were used to decorate the envelope.

Aah! What a beautifully made card. I love the ribbon and the sentiment, your colouring is fantastic and your choice of colours is so good.
