Hello! It’s Kari here today. I have a “Thank you Beary Much” card today with a fun background, too! I just fell in LOVE with these sweet bears from the Forest Friends set and I’m pairing it with the perfect sentiment! These stamps are all a part of the December kit, and boy are they cute!!

To start, I colored up the bears with Copic Markers in colors I just picked out quickly without too much fussing. These bears are so cute and I’m sure they will be adorable no matter what colors you choose!

Then I focused on the background. I chose 4 Distress Oxide inks and inked them on using my favorite blending tools for oxides. Then I used THIS stencil over the top and inked on the same colors. This creates a darker line on top of portions of the panel. It looks really fun! But try different or darker colors, too!

I took 2 heart shaped dies and cut out a large heart from the middle of the panel. I took the middle heart and added some Kaleidoscope powder in BLUE and GREEN…this makes the heart shine when you tilt it in the light! It was difficult to capture the shine in photos, but I do love those powders for some shine!

I attached the panels to a top-folding 110# card base, popping up the large heart with foam tape. Then I added the bears with liquid adhesive and Pop dots behind their heads for some extra dimension. The sentiment is so perfect for these characters, isn’t it!?

I hope you enjoyed this project today! I loved creating it and can’t wait to see all your creations with this kit.

I’ll be back soon with more cards made with this kit,
