Bear Pmd

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm to 4 1/8″. I scored this at 5 7/8″.

I then trimmed down a piece of White Card Hammered 255gsm and adhered this onto my card front using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then placed two rectangle dies onto a piece of Persian Pink Pearlised Card 300gsm to make a frame and I adhered this onto the card front with Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I then stamped and coloured the bears onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and trimmed them out. I adhered these onto the bottom of my card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm and trimmed this down and adhered to the top of the card using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I added a few drops of clear Nuvo Drops. I also die cut a heart using some Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm.

I think this card is sweet and will hopefully bring some love to the recipient.

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Acquamirine Nettuno Linen Effect Card 280gsm to 4 1/8 and I scored this at 5 7/8. This card is absolutely stunning and has a gorgeous texture too. 

I then trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and stamped my background stamp with versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I then heat set this and added some green pigment ink around the edges and adhered to my card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to stamp and colour the monsters. I then trimmed them out and adhered onto my card base.

Using a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm heat emboss your greeting with some white embossing powder. Trim this down and adhere with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm to your card base.

To finish the card off I added some nuvo drops.
