Freshly Made Sketches #145

I spent a good 2 hrs cutting card stock and scoring them for card bases, I have a good selection now but it sure takes a bit of time. 

I still wanted to craft after that and I took a look at the current Freshly MadeSketches challenge and the sketch look simple enough.. till I made it difficult.

I printed out this cute little bear twice and fussy cut it out. I had thoughts of grandeur and tried to create a fuzzy blanket for under it. First tried to use ink on a small piece of white felt (what a mess) tried the same with a dryer sheet.. wow (huge mess). Needless to say the blanket idea was ditched. 

So I ended up with the sentiment stamped, the card stock embossed and some twine and button to fill in the white space (big bad white space). Foam tape was used generously on the panel and the bear with its double layer.

Please excuse the darker image, I have been challenged with my camera the last month.

Supplies: White and brown card stock, Designer Paper – DCWV, C.C. Designs – Bear Hug, twine, pearl, button die cut.
