Paper Craft Crew Tic Tac Toe Challenge 202

Bear Hugs for Baby

PCC202-pam-staples003The Tic Tac Toe Challenges are quickly becoming some of my favorite challenges.  They are fun and really open up lots of possibilities for different cards based on a Tic Tac Toe Grid.  For this weeks card, I choose to follow Baby, Animal & Boy Tic Tac Toe.

Since I’m still in Minnesota with limited supplies, I had two choices of stamp sets and opted to go with Bear Hugs since it has a great “baby” themed sentiment.  I’m very happy with the way this card came together as a card for a Baby Boy.

An adorable baby bear is showing of his bow tie stamped with Mint Macaron with a Mint Macaron grunge background.  Then I used Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper Stack to pull in more of this great color to really accent the Baby Boy Theme.  


Bear Hugs Baby Boy Card Recipe:PCC202-pam-staples002

  • Stamp the Baby Bear from the Bear Hugs Stamp Set using Tip Top Taupe then cut the bear out with the Bear Hugs Framelits.
  • Use the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Mint Macaron to stamp a random grunge background.  
  • Layer the Baby Bear over the stamped background and Cut out your square and trim your baby bear to fit the square with the Layering Squares Framelits.
  • Create a border using the Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper Stack cut with the Layering Squares Framelits.
  • Attach the Bear to the square, add the bow then place on your background layer.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Tip Top Taupe under the attached square.
  • Attach the card front to the Whisper White card base.
