Welcome Little One Bear

Hi there and happy Thursday! Today I want to share a card I did for a special little someone that entered the wold Tuesday. Gosh, I'm getting old! I have no idea where the time went, but my God-daughter had her baby Tuesday afternoon, a bouncing baby girl, Isabella aka, Bella and this card is for her.



I used the adorable Baby Bear stamp that is a carry over from last year. I absolutely love this 3 step stamp as it just looks like you can reach out and snuggle his furry little self.  He's awesome. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a coordinating die, soooo my brand new Scan n Cut 2 came to the rescue. I know, many of you love to fussy cut and find it to be relaxing, but can I just tell you, I HATE to fussy cut! I do NOT find it to be in any way relaxing! As a matter of fact, it makes me very tense. I think mostly because I'm not good at it. It always looks "choppy" to me. I have tried and tried to get a nice smooth cut, but I can always see the scissor marks and to me it just looks sloppy. Now, don't get me wrong, I have done it when I had no other choice, and I'm sure there will be times, I will need to do it again, but for right now, I am LOVING my new Brother Scan n Cut 2.

Directions:

Card base: Whisper White cut 11" x 4.5" scored and folded at 5.5"
Powder Pink Cardstock: Cut 4.5" x .5" (You need 3)
Berry Burst Cardstock: Scrap piece cut using the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Collection
Baby Bear: Stamped using the Sahara Sand for step 1, Soft Suede for step 2 and Early Espresso for step 3, onto Whisper White; cut using the SNC2
Bow: stamped with Powder Pink for step 1 and Berry Burst for step 2 onto Whisper White; cut using the SNC2

I adhered the 3 Powder Pink strips to the card base using Snail adhesive, evenly spacing them toward the bottom. I then adhered the Baby Bear to the Berry Burst stitched oval, also with Snail ® and popped the entire piece up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment with the Berry Burst ink directly onto the card base and added the little bow to the Baby Bear with a mini Stampin' Dimensional. 

I love this little bear and love how this card came out. It is one of my most favorite sets and was so happy to see that it carried over into this years annual catalog. It makes my day and it makes me smile. I hope you enjoyed today's card. Please feel free to post your thoughts and let me know what you think of it. Tell me your favorite carry over set, I would love to hear!

Happy Stampin'
