Love You Beary Much

Hello friends, I hope this finds you doing well!  Today I have a cute Valentine card to share with you that I've made for the Valentine Love challenge at Double D Challenges.

I'm also joining the Love Is In The Air challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I created a pretty simple card to showcase this cute bear.  It's a mini-slimline size, so it's smaller than the regular slimline, measuring 3 1/4" x 6 3/8".  I used a scallop die meant for a slimline size card, but I just used partial die cutting to cut one end of the panel, then flip the die around to cut the other end of the panel so it came out to the shorter length.  

Next a piece of cute confetti patterned paper was trimmed down and layered on the top of the scallop panel, then I tied on a bow of white Baker's Twine.  I decided to create a little contrast between the scallop panel and the white card base, so the front of the card base was ink blended with Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink before adding the panel with foam tape.

The bear was stamped and colored with Copic markers.  He's so cute and cuddly, I just love him!  I used Versamark to stamp the sentiment on the heart, then heat set it with white embossing powder.  Because I didn't have the matching dies at the time, the image was then fussy cut.  To ground him on the card, the XOXO border was stamped in red then trimmed down and added to the panel, then the bear was popped up with from tape.  The last touch was to add three tiny hearts for a little embellishment and cover his nose with Glossy Accents.

That wraps it up.  Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  Take care and have a great weekend!
