Today I am starting my Winnie the Pooh series of cards. If you guys remember I got the carts off eBay last week for a pretty good price and of course I couldn't wait to use them!! I was really afraid that Pooh was going to be a repeat of Tinkerbell *okie shudders remembering the troubles she had cutting that freakin fairy* but surprisingly he cut rather well. Of course a fresh mat and blade always helps! *okie wishes she knew where to get an endless supply of cheap mats and blades*
For this card I did use both Pooh and Friends and Pooh Font. I wanted to make it look like Pooh was looking out a window so I used some patterned paper for backing. I think I should have chose some different paper, but oh well it is done now! A Stampin Up! marker was used on the grain of the wood for a little more definition.
The full card mat was ran through the Cuttlebug using the Distressed Stripes folder, that is one of my favorites!
I did do some shading on Pooh and I think it made him look a little better and not quite so stark. I used some hot fix studs for the nails on the wood window frame.
For the inside sentiment I found a quote of Pooh *okie giggles to self because that sounds funny to her and she is silly* that says "If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you" and then it says Happy Birthday. I figured what a way to tell someone happy birthday!
I did use Microsoft Word to print the sentiment and my friend Linda taught me how to do them in Hallmark Studio so I can get the right size and print them all at once. I just had to trim the sides and bottoms of the cardstock for the proper fit for the inside of the card.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the second card of the series!!
Very cute Okie! All of the Pooh cuts are much easier than the Tinker Bell cuts! That is my favorite Winnie the Pooh cut that you have used! I made an anniversary card for my hubby one year with that quote. Can't wait to see card #2 in the series!ReplyDelete

That's really cute! Too bad I don't have the Pooh cartridge or Shutterbuggin would be right!ReplyDelete
The CB background really makes it look good and putting the marker on the window frame sets it off a lot.

I LOVE this card! Pooh is a voting member of our household...he belongs to my 6 yr-old ds (and is almost as big) and comes along with us just about everywhere we go. He's ALWAYS buckled in the car for trips. :-)
