This is a simple card apart from cutting out the teapot shape. Getting the front, back and insert the same size was a bit tricky. Oh for a cutting machine! I used a template from a My Craft studio CD ROM and printed it onto scrap paper. I folded a piece of card in half and drew round the template on the front, cut the front out first and then with the card closed cut the back. For the insert I just used the central part of the template.
I covered the front with pale pink centura pearl paper and added highlights to it using a coloursoft pencil from Derwent. I then added a happy birthday peel off strip where the lid joins the pot body.
The image is from the Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Teddy bears picnic' and I coloured it using Promarkers and distress inks. I then edges it edged peel offs.
