Beary Merry Christmas

I know, it's crazy, but I still have the urge to make more Christmas cards.  I will make a few more and save them for next year.  I made two this evening ~ a bit of a challenge, but they are oh so cute.  The first one I call "Beary Merry Christmas".  I found some cute bear cards from CKS Paper Scraps, and I tried making the bear myself.  Mine doesn't look quite like hers, but I got it fairly close.  Here's the card I made tonight:

I'm so tickled pink that it turned out as cute as it did.  I love it, and I sure hope you do too.  It wasn't real easy to make, and I probably should have written down the instructions, but I can try and do that in case you want them.  All the products I used are Stampin Up with the exception of the "batting" I used on the santa hat, and I used MS's branch punch for the branches on the hat.  Did you also see that I used the top of the mitten from SU's mitten punch for the bear's hands?  How cool did that work out?

Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do.  Let me know, ok?  Have a great night, and stay tuned tomorrow for the other card I made.  It's a snowman ... and that's all I'm saying right now.  Until then, happy stamping, and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Helen, this is the cutest little think i've seen! Of course, I want to make some too, so if you tell us the things you used, it would be great! HAVE to case this one.

  2. I'll be happy to write down the instructions for you, Carol. Keep your eyes peeled. I'll post them in a day or so.
    Thanks for your sweet comment. I love this card too and couldn't resist. He's sooooooo cute!

  3. adorable, absolutely adorable. I will be watching for the instructions too. tfs. :)

  4. Helen, this is just too, too, cute. Love it! You are so talented. I am always looking for something cute for my grands. This might even look great as a birthday card, just change out the hat a bit. Thank you so much for the inspiration.
