How cute is this little guy? Stamp as many bear hugs as you want to give—with the Bear Hugs stamp set you’ll never run out. Is a special someone far away? Now you can put a bear hug in a card and send it anywhere.
I thought Mr. Bear would be a perfect way to wish a special someone a Happy Birthday! I started with a half-sheet of Mint Macaron cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and then layered a 1-1/2″ piece of the Mint Macaron Envelope paper along the bottom. A 1/4″ strip of Basic Black cardstock covered the seam and added a nice border to the striped paper.
I stamped the sentiments from the Happy Happenings stamp set using Black Archival Ink (and didn’t worry about the fact that they were a wee bit crooked. Done is better than perfect, right!?)
Mr. Bear was stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Bear Hugs Framelit Dies on the Big Shot machine.
To finish off the card, I punched a balloon using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, using a different pattern of the Mint Macaron paper, tied a piece of White Baker’s Twine to the bottom of the balloon and added all the pieces to the card using Stamping Dimensionals.
I must say, I’m loving the Mint Macaron with the Basic Black – it really pops! *Ü*
