Birthday Bear Hugs
Bear hugs are the best, whether they are from little boys, tweens, parents, family or a good friend.
I created a shaker card, still trying to get the hang of it, but after two tries I got one that works! I started by embossing a white card stock base with stitching, following the MFT Card Challenges: Sketch 268 and added a sentiment. Then I cut a rectangle from white cardstock and stamped the cute bear from Birthday Bears. I masked out his one paw that was lifted in the air, and redrew it to match the other. I also added a smile. He was colored with Copics. I then masked the bear off and inked a loose landscape onto the panel. The shaker was created using the same rectangle die with two layers of foam, acetate and a cardstock border. These rectangle dies really make for easy lining up for shakers. Before adhering the shaker border, I added some various sized sequins and flower shaped sequins. Can't wait to give this to my little nephew for his birthday.
And of course, because it is a shaker card, I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Shake it Up!
