Santa Bear

Good morning, I am still on a Christmas theme for my card making but tomorrow expect a fall card as I have one almost finished that I will share with you then. For today's card I decided to use my Build-a-Bear Dies and turn him into a cute Santa complete with bag. He is just to cute and so super easy to make with the Big Shot. There is no stamping on this card at all. Let me start with the base. I used Real Red Card Stock (102482) cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 then folded in the middle to make the finished card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The next layer is Chocolate Chip Card Stock (102128) and is cut 4 1/8 x 5 5/8. Then I added a layer of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper (115672). Then I moved onto my Santa Bear. To make the Build-a-Bear you will need the Stampin'Up! Bear Bigz Die (117977) and Stampin'Up! Beary Merry Die (117980). I used Close to Cocoa Card Stock (101341) and Creamy Caramel Card Stock (102514) to make the bear. Then I used Real Red Card Stock (102482), Basic Black Card Stock (102851), Whisper White Card Stock (100730), Brushed Silver Card Stock (100712). I added a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock (102128) and Pretty in Pink Card Stock (100459) behind the bears face to add his eyes and mouth. I also did some sponging to add a little extra dimension. For Santa's Buttons on his jacket I added Black Brads(109109). To make Santa's Bag I used the Ornament Punch (116794) and rounded the bottom edge with the Wide Oval Punch (112082).I used Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock (108697) and used Direct to Paper with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. The bag was finished off Linen Thread and the bear and bag were added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Wouldn't you like to have your very own Santa Bear? All items are available through Stampin'Up! and my Stampin'Up! website. Have a great day and 'til next next time, Tonya
