Card Sketch #178 – Bear Hugs

Do you need a bear hug?  Check out the adorable Bear Hugs Stamp Set from the 2016 Occasions Stampin’ Up! catalog.  These bears are just wanting to share some love with lots of bear hugs!

I stamped the bear with Chocolate Chip classic ink on Crumb Cake card stock then cut him out with the coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits Dies.  Of course, the bear needed a skirt so you knew it was a girl bear.  Yellow is one of my favorite colors especially Daffodil Delight so she is wearing a yellow skirt.  Then, since this is a Valentine, I have a box of “Love You” chocolates and a little flower.

Sticking to the sketch, I added a Crumb Cake Banner and Old Olive Banner in the background behind my bear hug.  The background features the English Garden Designer Series Paper to help set the tone of the bear in the woods.  To finish the card I layered the card front on Old Olive card stock then attached it to a Thick Whisper White card base.
