Designed 2 Delight - Bears Big Birthday Gift!


The designers at Card Ideas get to work with the fabulous designs from Faith at Designed 2 Delight and today it's my turn to showcase one of the super sweet images!
Bears Big Gift is so cute and would work well for many "celebration" cards. I have done it as a Birthday Card but it works equally well for Christmas, a Baby Shower, a Bridal Shower and more!

Challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday - Whateva/Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Digi Something
Corrosive - Button It Up
Dutch Dare - Buttons
Tuesday Throwdown - Stitching
CCEE Stampers - Punches
CRAFT - Die Cuts
Paper Play - Stamp It Out (use an image)
Stamps R Us - Animals
Alys - For The Guys
The Crafty Pad - Something for The Boys
Bearly Mine - Card For A Boy
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Happy Birthday (must have animal)
Drunken Stampers - Birthday
Crazy Challenge - Happy Birthday


Card Recipe:
Image - Bears Big Gift
Paper - Fine and Dandy True Blue pad by My Minds Eye
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Doodlebug Designs Birthday Stamps
Die Cut - Large Labels by Spellbinders
Punch - Morroco Lace Edger by EK Success
Buttons - Michaels $1 Spot
Chalk Ink - Cats Eye in Chestnut Roan
Gloss - Liquid Embossing in Clear Glass by Plaid (I got mine at Michaels)



I printed 3 copies of Bear and colored them and cut them and layered them (with the gift and arm being the only part on the top layer). I used regular white fun foam between the layers, so much cheaper than foam pads, I can cut it to size and it is a little thinner so works well when you are adding more than one layer.
I added Liquid Embossing in Clear Glass to his boots and inked around all the mats for a little extra touch.
I really love how he turned out and hope you do too:)
Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new card for Pink Gem Designs (and a very special Blog Hop too!) and then on Sunday it's Pile It On time!
