Happy BEARthday!

There is a Build-a-bear stamp set with the sentiment Happy BEARthday that I wish I had. I have wanted it several times, but just haven't committed to buying it. I probably will buy it one day and wish that I had bought it sooner!

So for this birthday card, I used the Build-a-Bear BigZ Die for the Big Shot and the Beary Accessories Sizzlit die for the clothes. The bear was a scrap that was lying on my desk for a while now. My daughter cut it from a scrap of poster board. It was very sturdy and survived being on my desk for several days. This is an accomplishment! I don't even survive my desk sometimes! So, I decided it would be a cute Polar Bear! I sponged the edges with Going Gray classic ink to just add a touch of color. The Polar Bears I see on Animal Planet are sort of yellow, but that didn't look so good. The gray makes her look like she needs to shave her legs! LOL

The clothes (click for a closer view) were made using papers from the Welcome Neighbor designer series paper pack that I got FREE from Sale-a-bration! Her heart, bow, and belt area have Dazzling Diamonds on them. A girl's got to have some bling!

I attached the bear using SNAIL adhesive, but I put 2 dimensionals behind her hand to make it look like she is waving. I cut a 1"x4.25" strip of whisper white and punched it with the Scallop Trim Punch. I then cut about 1/2" off the bottom of the front of the card, then attached the scallop trim whisper white piece under the front edge as a decorative touch. The card base is made using Melon Mambo.

Hope you enjoyed this project! I enjoyed stamping and creating it! I haven't stamped much lately. I'm going to have to change that!
