Hi everyone, Katie here with todays inspirational post! I wanted to share a cute card I made using Oli the Bear from Joset’s new Collection “The Great Outdoors”. I have so many ideas for this sweet little bear so I started with a Christmas Card. So grab a coffee and lets begin.
Step 1: Using your favorite cardstock cut out your bear bits (I used two shades of brown) then ink your edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Step 2: Stamp your word image, I used “Wishing you a Beary Merry Christmas” from the Bear, Moose, Beaver stamp set.
Step 3: Out of your favorite cardstock cut out your pinecone, evergreen boughs and red berries, ink and assemble.
I am so in love with this new die set, the detail as you can see above is amazing.
Step 4: Cut the base for your card, I used 110lb cardstock in kraft, Next, I cut a back ground paper from a blue plaid designer paper and ran it through a 3D embossing folder. (hard to see the image, but its pine boughs). Then I took another designer paper and cut out a oval mat for my card.
Step 5: Start assembling your card by adding your designer paper and oval to your card base. Next, add your pine boughs and pine cones, I used pop-dots for the Oli and the “Beary Merry Christmas” . I added red berries.
Step 6: I added glossy accents to Oli’s Nose and berries.
Step 7: I added Bear Paw Prints to the inside of the card. Final step I speckled the pinecones and pine boughs.
