Menagerie Mix-Up Bear Card

Hello!  Today, I am sharing a project made for a  Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  The sketch gave me a lot of inspiration to come up with the final design of the card and gave me a good reason to play with the newly released Menagerie Mix-Up bundle.  What an adorably cute set!

This was among the many new bundles, just released on Aug 4.  If you haven’t seen the new Aug-Dec catty, check it out here.

The card base is made with a Whisper White thick card stock.  I added a layer of regular Whisper White, cut at 5 1/2 and 4 1/4 and then embossed it with the new Wrapped In Texture folder, to create the background.

I used the Be Mine Stitched dies to create the scalloped edges and added a strip of Playing with Patterns DSP on top.  A stitched square in Coastal Cabana was also cut out.

The cute bear and balloons are from the Menagerie Mix-Ups stamp set and the dies.  The little guy was coloured with Crumb Cake blends and the balloon with Highland Heather blends.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays.

How cute is this set!  There are so many options to make cute animals for any occasion!
