An Itty-Bitty Celebration

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I were invited to attend a nameday celebration at the Village of Tiny Bears. A few span ago we had defended their village from an attack by the Needle-Nosed Naggi who were intent on ripping apart the little bears stitch by stitch. As a thank you for rescuing their clan, the village has made the Lady Commander and I honoured guests at this celebration. Incy, the tiniest bear of the clan, was celebrating his 20th trip around the sun today. There were mini cakes and teensy tarts with small sodas and bitsy beers to drink. 

I started this little card by colouring the Birdie Brown image with Prismacolors. I then cut out the card base using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I wanted this to be a ‘lil card, so I cut it at 3.75”. The sentiment I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiments” set, adding some brads on the sides. I embossed the circle behind the bear for some visual interest and texture, earning me +80 bumpy exp points. I inked the edges of all the pieces and added a ‘lil bow to finish off the front.

On the inside I inked the edges of the panel and stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Check This Out” set.

I cut the envelope at 4” using the Art Philosophy cartridge. The only thing I hate about cutting the envelopes from that cartridge is it makes these little scores lines and if you don’t fold it juuuuuust right they tend to rip (as you can see in the bottom right corner). I stamped the envelope using the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set.

This tincy-wincy card will wiggle into the following challenges:
Birdie Brown 2nd Birthday Challenge #1

Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #49 - used #3 (fluffy animals), #6 (ribbon and bows), #8 (a shaped card), #10 (brads or eyelets)

The itty-bitty celebration was an enjoyable event, even if the Lady Commander and I did tower over the Tiny Bears like giants. Despite her clumsy nature, the Lady Commander only managed to break one incy-wincy stool. I had expected a lot worse.
