Now on to my card!
This card is really clean and simple but just hits “all the feels”. I stamped SSS “You Matter” background stamp with Fog ink onto a panel of Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock. This just provided a bit of texture and interest. I then stamped the “Hang in there friend” sentiment from XL Greetings 2 set with black pigment ink, covered in clear embossing powder and heat set.
I used SSS Bear Hugs die set to cut cream, dark chocolate, Neenah desert storm, black (nose and eyes) and cotton candy cardstock (for the baby nose). This set comes with a backing for the bears making it super easy to piece all of the die cuts together. I cut a few extra of these in white to ensure that I had a little dimension and the bears stood out a bit. I adhered all of the bear pieces together and postitioned them upside down on the card. It was just too perfect with the sentiment not to! For that extra little shine, I used some glossy accents for the eyes and noses of the bears. My finishing touch was just a few simple pink hearts from my stash! The finished panel was adhered to a top folding A2 size card base.
I’m so excited to see the rest of the inspiration on this hop! I hope you enjoyed my creative process behind making this card. Stay crafty my friends!
