Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl card template and instructions

Trimcraft have recently released the cute new Tiny Tatty Teddy papercraft collection which includes beautiful papers and lots of coordinating embellishments.
I've used several items in the range to make this card.

What you'll need:
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy 8x8 paper pad
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl/Roses Steel die
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl Felt Flowers and Hearts
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl Wooden Buttons
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy A6 embossing folder-Girl/ Roses
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl Plastic buttons
Trimcraft Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl Adhesive Pearls

A4 white card
Dovecraft A4 Premium Colour card
Dovecraft Super Value Crafts Glue
Double sided tape
Dovecraft 3D foam squares
Bakers Twine

Craft knife
Die cutting machine
Promarkers (Ice Grey 1, Powder Blue, Rose Pink)

How I made it:

1. I have drawn a template to show the measurements of this card and also where the cuts and fold are. I started with an A4 sheet of white card and trimmed the short side to 20cm.

2. Make 4 slits as shown with a craft knife. Then score and fold as shown on the template.

3. Cut the following from the deep pink card in the Premium card pack,
(3.5cm x 19.5cm ) x2
(2.5cm x 15.5cm) x2
(9.5cm x 13.5cm)x1
(10cm x 7.5cm) x1

4. Cut a panel of flowery paper measuring 9cm x 13cm, TWO strips of heart paper measuring 3cm x 19cm (remembering that these will be placed vertically) and TWO strips of number paper measuring 2cm x 15cm (remembering that these will be placed horizontally).

5. Emboss a piece of white card in the Roses embossing folder and trim to 7cm x 9.5cm. Attach this to the 10cm x 7.5cm piece of deep pink card with double sided tape.

6. Attach all the pieces of patterned paper to the corresponding layers of deep pink card with double sided tape and attach to the sides, top and centre of the card as shown. 

7.  Cut out the Tiny Tatty Teddy Girl, bow and tiny butterfly dies in an die cutting machine and colour with Promarkers.  Curl the bow and butterfly with a pair of scissors or bone folder to give dimension, then glue to the top of the Teddy's head with a tiny pearl in the centre.

8. Glue the die cut Teddy to the embossed panel and add this at an angle to the centre of the card.

9. Add 5 of the large pieces of bunting to the top of the card on 3D foam squares with a button in the centre of each. Thread twine through a wooden button to make a bow and add to the centre of a felt heart then glue to the bottom left of the centre panel.
Add 5 pearls to the bottom of the card, as shown.
