How to Make a Sweet Bear Hooray Card0
I am going to show you how to make a super sweet bear card, you can change the greetings and turn this into a birthday or baby card too.
The products I used are:
- White Card Super Smooth 300gsm
- Black Plain Card 250gsm
- Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm
- Nubuck Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm
- Pastel Pink Plain Card 160gsm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml
- Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm
- A bear die
- Cuttlebug (cutting machine)
- Embossing powder
- heat gun
- Pigment inks
- word die
To start making the card I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm which I cut down and folded in half for my card base. I then used the leftover card for my card front. After cutting this down I used some pigment inks and my sponge to blend the inks together. The White Card Super Smooth 300gsm is perfect for ink blending, the card is so smooth and it feels like butter when you are blending your inks.
The next step is to die cut your word. I used some more White Card Super Smooth 300gsm for this and I die cut 4 pieces and stuck them together using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. This will make your die much thicker and looks great on your finished card. After this step you will need to make your bear. I used some Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm for the bears face. For the ears I used some Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm. The eyes and mouth were cut using some Black Plain Card 250gsm and the nose was made using Nubuck Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm. I then glued all the pieces together with Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.
You will then need to add your stamped sentiment. I used some white embossing powder which I embossed onto some Black Plain Card 250gsm. I then stuck down the card front onto my card base using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I then added the bear to the base of the card using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. Once this was stuck down I added the die cut word using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml to the top of the card. The stamped sentiment was then placed just under the die cut word and I added some sequins using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml to finish the card off.
I hope you have fun making a sweet bear card!
