Hello and happy Saturday! This adorable little fella was created for the Cards From The Heart Card and the Send A Smile 4 Kids Valentine card drives. I have donated cards to both of these card drives two years in a row and I love doing it. If you are a card maker reading this blog please consider donating some of your stash to this worthy cause! To create my card I started by layering an adorable piece of patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye's Filled With Love 6x6 paper pad onto some cherry cobbler cardstock from Stampin' UP and then adhered the whole thing to my white card base. I printed the adorable little bear (found on Etsy) onto some Copic-friendly cardstock and colored him using my alcohol markers. I die cut him using a pierced edge die from My Favorite Things. I added a strip of coordinating patterned paper from the same paper pad and then layered the die cut panel directly onto the card base. I printed the bear image one more time using typing paper and some patterned paper I'd adhered and printed the shirt. I fussy cut the image and edged it with my dual tip Memento marker so it would look like it had been die cut. I added a small 1" strip of white cardstock to the bottom of the card and stamped the sentiment and hearts from Paper Smooches Word Salad stamp set, which I colored using my alcohol markers to have ombre effect. To finish the card I added some dashed black lines around the die cut panel and the sentiment strip. Thank you for visiting my blog today!
