I think this poor fellow is looking a bit like several of my bloggie friends have been feeling lately. This is "Beary Sick" from Mo's Digital Pencil and I've used him for our "Anything but a square" challenge this week at DP2.
My original plan was to make everything about him cozy. He's dressed in his comfy night shirt and has his fuzzy slippers on. I wanted to carry on the theme, so he got a sentiment about chicken soup and some tea on the inside of the card. Perfect sickie food!
To further carry over the theme I wanted him to have a quilt. Now I have done a wee bit of quilting myself (I'm too impatient to see the end result so my seam matching stinks LOL) but this paper quilting was much easier. I so wish I could have gotten it to photograph better, but it's really more of a tactile thing anyway. After stitching my DP at intervals I turned the panel over and used my large embossing tool to soften the centers of each square, then I added a pop dot in there. I also added 1/8" Score Tape to the seams. Once attached to the card base it makes those little squares puff up like they're stuffed. It feels so cool when you run your fingers over it.
I added a 3/8" fold to the top of the card base so that there would be room enough on the inside for the tea bag and it's pocket. There's also a little tag tucked in behind that says "Hope you feel better soon".
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
