Party Bears

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another fun challenge with hostess Frances and the CCEE stampers team.

Yesterday 16th November was " Have a Party with Your Bear Day". So to celebrate, lets's feature bears on your cards this week


This was a perfect challenge to use my Stampendous bears from the woodland friends set. The bear head and body comes as two separate stamps, after fussy cutting them I have angled the heads for some added expression.
The pop up platform for the centre of the card was made with the Lots of pops die designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs .   The party hats were made with the Props 2 die set. I have just used the designer paper for the front of the card as the main focal point is in the middle.
