I have super fun news! I have joined the Treasure Box Designs DT. This super fun and very easy card is my first DT post. I'm excited about the new adventure!
I have used the Fall Bear from the $1.00 section of the store. I just swapped his fall leaf for a shamrock. I also made him to sit down instead of stand up.
I always start my cards by putting them together in my Cameo DE software first. I like to get an idea of what they will look like before I even start cutting. And if I don't like what I see on the screen, I usually just scrap the idea or fiddle around with it until I do like it. I decided I wanted my bear to sit instead of stand; so when virtually piecing it together, I just changed up the right and left leg so that the feet would point up. I then removed the fall leaf, found a shamrock, and sized it to fit the way I liked it. Once I was happy on the screen, I cut a piece of #110 white cardstock to make a 4 1/2" square base. I added a background paper from Teresa Collin's Christmas Cottage paper collection. I cut my bear and pieced him together and popped him on the card using foam squares. I then tied my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the bottom and stamped on my sentiment. I found the sentiment in a dollar bin last year at a LSS store.
For added dimension on my bear, I used inks, chalks, and my gel pen. The little extras give the piecings a bit more character!
I'm so glad you stopped by today! I hope you will leave a comment as I truly appreciate them and enjoy reading them. You can also find my cards and other projects on my Facebook and Pinterest pages.
