Button Bear Celebrates

This card could be used for a few different things. Get Well Wishes, Birthday, Congrats for Baby. I really like how this one turned out. I used Julee's sketch from Poetic Artistry. What a neat sketch this one is. Julee is having a contest on her sketch, you might want to check it out. I have included Julee's sketch here.
I am also doing this one for the Ways to use it Challenge WT161 on SCS. I used eyelets and brads on this one and the challenge is for eyelets. The white dots on the black strip really made the card to add more dimension.
So on with the card you will need the following supplies:

Whisper White, Basic Black card stock
Scrap of designer paper
Button Bear Stamp set or your choice of stamp set
Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder
White Gel Pen
3 white eyelets and 3 balloon brads
gamsol and colored pencils

Cut a sheet of Whisper white in half so you have a 2 pieces at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Fold one in half to get your main card at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cut the other piece in half at 4 x 5 1/4 this will be run though with your embossing folder. Last white piece cut at 2 3/4 x 2 7/8. Stamp image on this piece and color in with gamsol and colored pencils. With crop-a-dile punch 3 holes on upper right hand side for balloon brads. Add your brads.
Cut basic black at 3 x 3 1/8 and mount image to this and set aside. Cut one piece at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and add to main card front. With your embossed white piece add to the black.
Cut a piece of designer paper at 3 1/2 x 3. Mount this to a black piece of card stock that measures 3 3/4 x 3 1/4. Add this to you card on top the white. Now cut another black piece at 1 1/2 x 4 1/4. Add dots with white gel pen around edges. Next take your crop-a-dile and punch 3 holes evenly spaced on the left side. Add white eyelets. Mount to the card. Then add your stamped image and your done. See sample for placement of these pieces if you don't understand my directions.
