Christmas Smoochie Bears

I used this Christmas Smoochie Bears Stamp by Stamp Art Design for my Christmas in July card. I have been dying to use my white  flower soft on a Christmas card and this was the  perfect product to add to the hats to make them look soft and fluffy. I also used my new Memory Box die to give my card some pretty snowflakes and finished off with ribbon with dots. I love this polka dot paper, the dots feel like velvet and add to that warm fuzzy feeling with this card. I’m putting this card aside to give hubby for Christmas as we got married just a few days before Christmas and hopefully he will think this is cute! I paper pieced the jackets and gloves and if you look closely it has faint Christmas running writing through the red designer paper. First I printed onto this image onto White Cardstock and did my colouring in with my Copics and then I decided what paper to use to paper piece with. Xmas card july 2012 001
For the paper piecing I printed off a sheet of my images using copy paper and then stuck  my designer paper down with double sided tape using a 6 x 6 sheet and ran it through my printer again. I did this so I didn’t have any wastage with my designer paper and positioned it exactly so I could use this for another card at a later time and now I have a spare set to fussy cut out when I’m waiting for my daughter at her next singing lesson!
