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!
