Beary Merry Christmas Bears


Hi There,

Just getting an early start on this years Christmas cards. I make over 40 cards every year!

All cards are made using Too Cute By Jessica – Little Lovelies A Beary Merry Christmas. .svg design is by Jessica Owens.

I uploaded the patterns for the bears into Cricut Design Space and cut using my Cricut Explore.

Inked all of the edges for the bears and accessories and then ran the pieces through my Xyron’s for easy assembly. Highlighted the eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

For the first bear, sentiment was stamped using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom – Season’s Tweetings.

Used Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. I ran the die half way through my Big Shot and then turned it around to get the ribbon edge on both sides.

Patterned Paper – American Crafts – Merry and Bright 6 x 6″ pad and American Crafts – Holiday 6 x 6″ pad. The top patterned paper was cut out using Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. I also used the same die for the foam used to make this a shaker card. Filled the shaker card with Creatology Glitter.
