On my card today I used Teddy Birthday Hat by Lee Holland colored with Copics. To add some extra interest to this CAS style card I created a polka dot see through panel.

Using the Polka Dot Fun clear stamp set I stamped with Versamark ink onto acetate and heat embossed with white embossing powder. If you are heat embossing on acetate it is important to use a thicker acetate sheet as it will withstand the heat better and wont warp. There are special acetate sheets for heat embossing available from several companies. Still be careful while embossing. You have to keep moving your heat gun constantly. Do not heat one spot too long. With this technique you want to use a little bit of heat often.

To create the doodled corners I used a stamp from the FADoodles clear set and the sentiment is from the Simple Sentiments set.

Teddy Fur: E50, E51, E53, W4
Teddy Nose and Foot Pads: E40, E42, E44, E47
