Bear Card for Kari

One of our fellow crafters lost her dad to Covid 19 the day after Christmas. Those of us who have lost our parents, or any loved one for that matter, know how difficult it is. Kari (Sunshine In My Pocket is her blog name), has asked that fellow card makers make cards that include bears in their design. Post the cards on Instagram with the hash tag #bearcardsfordad and tag her@kariavan. I don’t know Kari, but I do know that it is always worth the effort to help someone through a difficult time.

To create the card, I grabbed Catherine Pooler inks in Flirty Fuchsia, Grape Crush, Suede Shoes and Black Jack and created a the background. I also grabbed a card base and inked the top of it with Tiara so the stars that showed through in a beautiful yellow color.

I cut the card panel out using Catherine Pooler’s Starry Night background die (my favorite).I attached the card panel to the card base with a liquid glue. I stamped the bears and the trees from Lawn Fawns Winter Skies stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the bears using Copic C00, C1 and C3. I used G06, G09 and G17 for the trees. Y06, Y08 and Y19. I used a Uniball Signol white gel pen for the polka dots.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders to create the snow drifts. A little B000 to create the shadow in the snow. The final touch is the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Super Star stamp set. I used a black Gelly Roll pen to color the bears nose.

I appreciate you all stopping by! Please help Kari get to 74 cards.
