Now doesn’t this bear look totally happy? What more can you ask for than a tummy full of cake? (or cookies) 🙂 This Birthday Bear and the words (which are just perfect for him!) are by Whipper Snapper Designs.
I stamped the bear twice….once on the yellow patterned paper and again on white cardstock. After watercoloring the bear I cut him out, keeping the plate attached. Then I cut out the balloon separate and glued the pieces overtop of the image on the yellow layer. The bottom of the cardfront was trimmed so that the words could be stamped on the inside of the back and still show when the card is closed. The back was punched twice with the SU! slit punch and holds the front closed when it is tucked in the slit. Two buttons were attached over the punched areas and I doodled on the photo corner punch. A little Stickles finished it off.
