How About Some Bear Hugs?

Beat Hugs Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

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*
