December Bloggerations Day 11 - A New Bearby Card

Hello there, Santa paws with you today, no, of course it's not Pooh in disguise, what gave you that idea!!!!

I'm here today to show you a paw made card for a new bearby born recently, a little girl cub. How lovely, and a great reason to get the card making stash out. First, my favourite stamp, Aloysius the bear of course!

I chose some vintage and girly colour distress inks

And invented a new way to really get your images to show on your card. Is this why they're called stamps?

After stamping my image, I used my Tattered Rose distress ink to colour over it, for a softer look.

I then cut the image, and used the corner rounder, in my own inimitable style.

I knew the boots would be useful for something!!

I made a frame for the bear card topper with a scroll stamp, to add extra interest to the card.

I then found some 6x6 vintage style patterned papers from our 6x6 paper stash mountain, and assembled my card. I added the new bearby's name, as a pawsonalised card always goes down well.

Now I just need to find a willing volunteer to go to the Post Office with my creation, it's going all the way to America.

With love from the bears.


  1. Loving your stamping and corner rounding technique. Think I will try the same! Sweet card. Ali x ps The beard suits you.

  2. So pretty in pink... If it ever gets to the Post Office for delivery, I'm sure it will go down a treat with the new parents (Stella won't appreciate it for a while yet, I should think)... Lovely STAMPing, Pooh - sorry, Father Christmas, I mean!
