Hello, Honey Bee friends!! I hope your week has started off well!!
I have a Christmas card to share with you today featuring the oh-so-adorable Bear Hugs Stamp Set!!
I began by stamping the bear and sentiment from the Bear Hugs Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. I colored the bear with Copics, added highlights with a white gel pen, darkened the eyes and nose with a black glaze pen, then cut him and the sentiment out with the Coordinating Honey Cuts.
Next, I die-cut the Grapevine Wreath Die twice from white cardstock and the bow included in that set from red glitter cardstock two times. The background panel is one of the Free Bee panels included with a qualifying purchase. The wreaths were slipped over the bears head and adhered with Bee Creative Glue. The bear was adhered with Bee Creative Glue at the bottom and popped up with foam tape toward the top. The bows were adhered flat with liquid glue and the sentiment die-cut was also popped up with foam adhesive.
I added some crystal glaze to the lights and star for a little more shine, then adhered some red gems from the Make It Merry Gem Stickers Pack to finish it off!!
I just love this polar bear!! I think the grapevine wreath is the perfect accent to set him apart from the patterned background!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!
