Animal Cards, Holiday Cards

Merry Christmas


Hi there, happy Saturday!

I’m a bit behind these days, but technically still on track for the 30-day coloring challenge.  After a long work-week a few bitty bears were about all I could manage last night, lol!

I used Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink to stamp a few of the cute bears from My Favorite Things’ Bitty Bears stamp set onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  Then I did some very basic coloring using E21 and E23 for the bears’ fur.  Before I colored the red elements, I added texture to the fur by adding a few drops of Copic Blending Solution onto a rag and dabbing it over the fur.  Then I used R02 and R05 to finish the accessories.  I added a few white gel pen details and then die cut the images.

I used the Circle Frames die from Avery Elle on an A2-sized piece of Neenah to create the card front.  I trimmed it to 4″ x 5.25″, backed it with foam tape, and then adhered it to another piece of cardstock.  I adhered the bitty bears to the directly that back panel and then added the sentiment which I had heat embossed using white Hero Arts embossing powder.

For the blue base, I colored the edges of another piece of Neenah using B00.  I like to do this when I don’t have the right color of cardstock.

To finish, I adhered the card front to the blue-edged panel and then adhered the entire thing to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
