Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop! Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring projects. Be sure to visit all the stops….you don’t want to miss anything!
This month, I’ll be hosting a Cookie Cutter Stamp-a-Stack featuring the Cookie Cutter Christmas & Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp sets. In my last post, I shared the Scarecrow card that we will be making in class. Today, I’m sharing a simply adorable teddy bear Christmas card that will also be included.
I based the layout on this week’s Mojo Monday sketch, so the sizing is a bit different. The Very Vanilla card stock base of the card measures 3-1/2″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. It still fits perfectly in our medium envelopes and allows for a little extra dimension.
I began by stamping the teddy bear image in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. You’ll also have to stamp the ears, but because it is a photopolymer stamp set, you can line it up perfectly. The eyes, nose, and mouth were stamped in Basic Black ink. I stamped the bowtie in Real Red ink onto Real Red card stock, then used the Cookie Cutter Builder punch to cut it out. The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green ink directly below the bear, and Real Red 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon was tied around the layered panel before adhering it to the card with dimensionals.
This card has a lot of texture, just like your favorite teddy bear. My new favorite way to add texture is with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (wow! that’s a mouthful!). This folder is extra thick and creates a very deep impression. I know you’ll love it! The patterned paper is from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
