A Bear that Cares.

Good evening Followers. Friends and Visitors,

Hope your weekend has been a good one.   The dreadful winds we have been experiencing of late,  have at last, calmed down but they have been replaced with snow here lol!!    brrr.... so cold!   We woke up to three inches of the white stuff on Saturday much to our Grandson's delight lol!   enough of the right kind of snow to build a snowman!    It has been snowing on and off most of today and more is forecast overnight.

Well onto tonight's card.    I have just learned that my very good friend of 45 years has fallen and fractured her pelvis, so this card was made to cheer her up.   I do hope you like it.

This is the finished card.   I just love this little bear, he is so cute holding those flowers for my friend.



Make a base card from white card stock.   Put the card front into the daisy chain embossing folder and run through an embossing machine.   Remove the card from the folder and lightly rub the distress inks over the embossed card.

Die-cut a white square, using the Spellbinder's die.   Stamp Bently Bear in the centre using a black ink pad.   Colour him using Promarker pens.

     
Matt this onto a slightly larger piece of green leaf patterned paper.   Glue this to the centre of the base card.


Stamp the bear once more onto white card  and colour him, cut him out and glue to the original bear image.   Die-cut the flowers and the leaf stems, colour them with Promarker pens and  add a small amount of red glitter gel pen onto the flower petals.

 
Fix these to the base card and add a red gemstone to each flower centre.   Glue a ribbon bow to the left-hand edge of the base card.

 
Well that's it finished my friends, quite a quick and simple card to make.    Until my next post, look after yourselves, stay safe, warm and snug in the expected very cold weather.   Many thanks for stopping by my blog and if you have left me a comment - 'thank you,'   I appreciate each and every one and I will endeavour to return the compliment.

                                                             Love and rainbows,

                                                          Crafty Hugs,   Jennifer xx.
