Finally Boo Bear...

Hi all,

Hope everyone's well. Can you believe it's snowing outside again! It's getting quite thick as I type...

Anyway, at long last all my recipients have received their Boo Bear Cards and I did say I'd post mine once they all went out to their respective new homes :)

So, here it is... the long awaited Boo Bear card that I made:

Used the Go-Kreate Boo Bear die cut to cut out this gorgeous little bear! For the swap I did over at SCS, I had six of us participating in all, so I managed to cut up five for each person and sent them out. I purposely gave each recipient a different coloured Boo Bear, so mine was white, whereas, others where black, grey, blue, brown etc.

Card base - Royal Langnickel - Opalescent White A6 blank card and envelope.
Papers - Pink Bazzill Bling Cardstock, Stampin’ Up! A4 Cardstock - Whisper White and Pretty In Pink and Stampin’ Up! 12x12 Textured Cardstock - Whisper White. (P.67-69).
Inks - Stampin’ Up! Pretty In Pink Ink Pad (P.69), VersaMark Stamp Pad (P.67.).
Pastels - Stampin’ Up! - Stampin’ Pastels (P.67).
Pens - Black Pen - Letraset Pigmented Ink Water-Based Marker-Proof and White Pen - Inkssentials Opaque Pen.
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Bloom Dots.
Stamp Set - Stampin’ Up! “Weather Or Not” (Handbags).
Sentiment - Computer generated.
Die Cuts - Go Kreate Boo Bear and Spellbinder Nestabilities - Labels Two.
Ribbon - Ribbon Stash.
Stampin' Dimensionals - 3D Foam Pads

Hope you think this card is cute, I certainly had a lot of fun making her :) Please feel free to leave a comment.

Bye for now,
