Talk about embellishment city!!!! This was a special request from my sister-in-law; and I thought some of the weekly challenges was challenging! She wanted a special Thank you card and it HAD to include the following: a teddy bear, flowers, a cat, a whale, and a platypus! (is that all? lol). Anyway, the card is 81/2 x 51/2 Avery Textured cards colour 3378. I dabbed the front with various Autumn Leaves clear stamp ink pads: green, blue, and lime green. The bear I created from SCAL welding several given shapes. I'm very happy with the results. I used an old cuff link button for the collar of the tie, Martha Stewart ribbon, embossing powder, small blue crystals for the cats eyes. The whale is from a SVGcuts file (toy whale)as is the black cat file.
The platypus is a whole other story; I had started with a jpg picture, converted it using Paint and then Inkscape, imported it into SCAL. Card stock is Martha Stewart Heirloom paper pad.
