Welcoming Baby Eli

So we have a new little nephew named Eli Albert and am sending this card with a package of new baby duds.  I wanted to try playing around with dimension coupled with paper piecing stamped images.  This cute teddy bear digi was printed out twice on some Echo Park pp.  I cut him an extra head, forearm and leg and slowly and carefully embossed their backs to give those pieces a puffy look.  You are actually stretching the paper, so you have to take care.  I attached them over the entire stamped image with layered foam tape to give him a "stuffed" look.   He's very cute but it's difficult for the camera to really show his dimensionality.   Anyway, a paper doily, some baker's twine, some old Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, and more October Afternoon Ducks in a Row patterned paper and good to go.  If you click on him for larger view, you can see the puffiness a bit better.  Have a great day!

"Teddy" digital stamp courtesy of Faith of  Designed2Delight and was a freebie last year.  I LOVE him!
