I'm playing along with the CAS Colours & Sketches team again. They have a fun layout which I'll be honest, I had a hard time keeping myself from adding more details and embellishments! But I stuck to the 'clean and simple' directive.
I'm using the big bear from the Happier Than Happy set along with a narrow strip of the coordinating Happy Forest Friends DSP.
I wanted to add the little stump and some mushrooms and gems but as you can see this is still a really cute card.
I started with a Sahara Sand base and then added the layer of DSP on the edge. I cut a square frame out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Stylish Shapes dies.
The bear is stamped in Soft Suede onto Basic White and then I colored in his nose and mouth area with the light Crumb Cake Blends. I popped him over the frame for dimension. The 'hello' sentiment is also from this same set but I used my Mossy Meadow marker to ink up just the hello part leaving the 'baby' uninked.
The final detail is a little Calypso Coral baker's twine bow that I found in my scrap ribbon bin. It retired long ago but baker's twine never goes out of style! There is a ribbon combo back in Old Olive and Sahara Sand if you're interested in current ribbon that matches this suite.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
