A Christmas Bear

August 10, 2017

This is a card that kind of grew and grew.  I wanted to use the bear from the Baby Bear stamp set on a Christmas card and this is the end result.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Real Red card.  I stamped the greeting from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut out the words individually.  I attached the greeting to a circle of Whisper White card cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the first image using Sahara Sand ink, the second image using Crumb Cake ink and the third image using Soft Suede ink.  I cut the image out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  To create the parcel image, I stamped the square parcel from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I also stamped the image onto a post-it-note and cut it out.  I attached the post-it-note image over the stamped image and then stamped the other two parcel images from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I removed the mask and then used post-it-notes to mask off the other two parcels so that I could stamp one of the flower centres from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set using Real Red ink to decorate the square parcel.  I removed the post-it-notes, cut out the image and coloured the remaining parcels using Real Red and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Markers.  The parcels are attached to another circle of Whisper White card cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  I cut Real Red scalloped circles for each Whisper White circle using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The greeting circle is attached flat to the card front and each of the other circles has dimensionals under the outside so that it can sit over the other circles.  I stamped the large bow from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the small bow and the round bow onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink.  Each of the bows is cut out using the matching Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies.  I attached the bows to the parcels to finish off the look.  The large bow is attached using a Mini Dimensional and the other bows are attached using Glue Dots.

Since there was so much happening on the card front, to decorate the inside, I simply embossed a strip of Whisper White card using the Cable Knit Embossing folder and attached a narrow strip of Real Red card behind one long edge.

I think this card will be just perfect for someone small.  I am sending this one as part of a pack to my Aunty and I am sure she will find someone special to give it to at Christmas.

Bye for now,

Kris
