Bear Hugs Card

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card with the Mama Elephant Bear Hugs stamps and die set.  I just love this set.  I waiting for a while to pick it up but I am so glad I did.  

This is the image I posted on Instagram a few days ago for #thedailymarker30day2 challenge from Kathy from The Daily Marker.  This is the card I made with that image.

I used the SSS stitched rectangles to make a frame out of Fog card stock.  I coloured the bears with my Prisma coloured pencils and I forgot to take down the colours (sorry about that!).  I will make sure I try and get the numbers next time.  For the moon I used a piece of yellow card stock and highlighted it with wild honey distress ink to give it a bit of depth and covered it with Clear Wink of Stella glitter marker.  I used a warm grey copic marker (W5) as a border on the card base.

I cut out the star patterned paper from the Avery Elle "The everyday collection" 6x6 paper pack with the same stitched rectangle die as the frame to keep everything the same size.  This just keeps everything clean and I don't have to worry about straight lines.

For the hills in the background I used the SSS stitched slops and hills dies and I used the one that has the partial stitches.

I couldn't find the perfect place on the front of the card to put a sentiment so I just left one out.  I think the bears explain the card all on their own.

To finish off the card I used Pretty Pink Posh silver 6mm sequins and wanted them to look like some of the stars in the sky.


Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
