Beary Good Birthday


Happy Hello.
Here's a simple card I made using a background I found in my stash.  
Yes, I keep saying I find these backgrounds in my stash, it is a large collection.  Often when I get time to play, I just make backgrounds, then tuck them away for a future card.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • Like I mentioned above, I looked through my stash until I found this background.  I had either embossed a Gel Plate roll off sheet or I inked the inside of the embossing folder? (I need to do a better job at writing down what I have done while creating these backgrounds.)
  • I stamped the bear from the Polar Pals set, fussy cut it out and then used my Copic markers to add colour.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the same set on a scrap strip of cardstock.
  • I glued the embossed piece to some white, then onto green cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I pop dotted the bear into the corner and added the sentiment strip along the top.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

A stunning background Karen, and the bear is worthy of his spot of honour in front of it.
Stay safe
