Ballerina Bear

I swear that this is the last you will see of this little bear from me for awhile, but I just had to use it for this card!

My good friend is so excited to be having a baby girl in January and I am a shower host so of course I signed up to make invites. The bedding she picked out is called Twirling Around from Babies R Us. When I saw it, I knew exactly what I was going to do for her invites! I made about 2o of these cards so the design is simple but oh-so-cute!

Here are the details:
  • This is a Pretty in Pink A2 card base.
  • The Regal Rose pattern print on the left is from the retired Hostess Level 1 Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper II. It measures 4.25"x1".
  • I wrapped this gorgeous Whisper White Organza around the DSP and tied it in a pretty bow before adhering it to the card.
  • A 4.25"x1" piece of Whisper White was given an eyelet border at attached next.
  • The bear image was stamped onto Watercolor paper and filled in using a blender pen and varying shades of Creamy Caramel. It was snipped out using paper snips. TIP: Paper snips are a must-have when trimming out detailed images.
  • The bear became a "she" by adding some pink organza ribbon (non-SU) for a tutu and hair bow. I took some white craft wire to cinch up one side of the 1/2" piece of ribbon and used some Scotch tape to hold it in place behind the bear. A smaller (1/4") piece of ribbon was tied into a simple knot and held in place with a mini glue dot for the hair bow.
  • A 2"x2" piece of Whisper White was "texturized" using a dot embossing folder (non-su) and my Big Shot. I layered it onto a slightly larger piece of Regal Rose.
  • The little ballerina was added last using dimensionals.
  • Little half pearl stickers (various sizes) were the finishing touch!
