From the Heart Progressive Freebie Challenge

This month From the Heart have provided a great bear and presents image which  would work well for both Christmas and December birthdays. That reminds me, it is a special little lady’s 4th birthday on the 27th, better get organised for it!

Materials used:SAM_2556(watermarked)
From the Heart Stamps – Gift Stack Teddy Bear
red gold foiled star card
silver grey card
large square white card blank
decorative frame die set
blending card
Copic pens

Print image to desired size and colour with Copic pens.

Cut a large decorative frame from the red foiled card and use this to cut the image to the right size with a slightly larger mat cut from the silver grey card.

Assemble all the elements onto the front of the card blank.

Finally add glitter to the fur on the bear’s hat.

I have not added a sentiment to this card yet because I am still undecided whether it will be a Christmas card or a birthday card!

Thanks for stopping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
