To start with I have used my arches die to make my card base. I die cut the largest die 3 times using White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and then one more using a piece of White Card Hammered 255gsm. I adhered these pieces together and the piece with White Card Hammered 255gsm will be my card front. I then used a few smaller arches die and made a frame using two dies together and I went ahead and run this through my die cutting machine using a piece of Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm.

Using a piece of Ivory Card Smooth 260gsm I die cut another arch that is the same size as my frame. I then used my embossing folder nd ran this through my die cutting machine. The pink frame will be adhered to this piece that is embossed.

Using the larger bear die and piece of Latte Brown Smooth Card , I die cut the bear. I then added some extras to his face. I adhered my bear into the frame and placed onto my card front. Once this was all ready I used my hot foil machine to make my sentiment, if you don’t have a hot foiling machine just use a stamp or you can even hand write your sentiment. I added som flowers to the bears hands to finish my card off.
