Ok, how adorable is this Hugs Set from Concord & 9th???
Good morning crafty friends, Amy here, with an UN-BEAR-ABLY cute card that’s perfect for sending someone a little pick me up. :o)
I started with Kraft cardstock which I cut out a circle with a circle die. I then embossed it using Tim Holtz Alterations- Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I ran my Vintage Photo Distress Ink over it to highlight the texture and then adhered the panel to my card base, that I also cut out a matching circle on the card front panel only.
I stamped the cute bear from the Hugs Set onto watercolor paper with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and heat set. I watercolored him up with Tombow Markers and waterbrush pen. Once dry, I fussy cut him out and set him aside.
Now, to complete the front of my card, I wanted to make it look like he was in a Tree House…so I added some leaves using Cottage Cutz- Greenery dies in two different colors of Green Cardstock. I then added a little button/twine, because how cute is that? lol! I also stamped the “HUGS” & “ENCLOSED” sentiments from the set onto Kraft paper and layered onto black cardstock to tie into my cardbase and make them look like little signs on his treehouse. ;o)
To finish off the card I adhered the bear to the inside panel of my card so him and his sign are peaking through the circle cutout on the front of the card- this helps to finish off the inside of my card as well. :o)
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed my lil’ card today and were inspired to get crafty today!
