A Big Ol' Bear Hug

I thought I would do a Valentine bear hug card. Once I did it I realized it would be great for anything for kids and bear lovers too! Who doesn't need a great big ol' bear hug once in a while?

I used the scallop circle #2 die with the big shot. This is the one that has two scallop circles on it.
The mouth is the wide oval and the paws and inside of the ears are the 1" circle punch. Eyes are 3/4" circle white with 1/4" circle black. Nose is 1/2" circle. Heart is from the heart to heart punch. The sentiment is from the All Holiday stamp set.
For the arms I cut a close to cocoa piece 11" x 2 3/4" and scored it at 3 3/8" and 7 5/8".

Then I just cut out the shape to make the arms, it doesn't have to be perfect, you get the idea. I sponged all the edges and popped up the layers with dimensionals to add some dimension to him.

My card is standard size and does not open, however with the ears sticking out it will not fit in a standard envelope.

Thanks for sharing! Your work is so inspiring!


SCS should have a 3C warning-Caution Cute Card. Made the mistake of browsing while my 6yr old was watching and she saw your adorable card and had to have it for the Valentines to share at school. Thank you so much for the nice directions so at least I don't have to guess about how you did it! Terrific work. TFS!!
