Send warm well wishes this winter with a beary cute card! First, create a card base from Blushing Bride Cardstock. With a Blushing Bride Classic Stampin’ Pad, add ink to the leaf stamp from the kit’s stamp set and stamp a tone-on-tone pattern onto the card front. Set aside.
With a Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad, add ink to the inside of the Woodland Embossing Folder. Insert a piece of Whisper White Cardstock into the embossing folder, then run it through our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Once through, the Whisper White Cardstock should have color through the imprinted designs! Use scissors or our Paper Trimmer to cut down the embossed cardstock, central to the card front. Attach with dimensionals.
Take two similarly-sized rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles Dies, one slightly larger than the other. On another piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, nest the smaller stitched die into the larger stitched die. Run through our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine for a thin, embossed frame! Adhere this frame around the woodland square with Foam Adhesive Strips.
Finally, with Crumb Cake ink, stamp the Beary Comforting Stamp Set’s bear stamp onto Watercolor Paper. With a Saddle Brown Stazon Ink Pad and a Water Painter, fill in the bear’s fur. Do the same with Blushing Bride ink to add rosy cheeks! Cut out the bear, adhere to the card with dimensionals, then stamp the kit’s “Get well soon” sentiment onto a small piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock.

Let a loved one know they’re on your mind with this cuddly koala card! First, place a piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock into one of our Greenery Embossing Folders, then run through our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Cut into three small strips, then create a card base with another piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Adhere the three small strips onto the card front to create a textured background. Set aside.
With the Be Mine Stitched Dies, cut a solid heart shape from a piece of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper. Then, use the Be Mine Stitched Dies to cut a stitched heart shape outline from Shaded Spruce Cardstock. Adhere the patterned heart to the center of the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, then do the same with the Shaded Spruce border around the patterned heart.
Adhere two of the kit’s die-cut koalas to the center of the patterned heart. Bury the bears with Just Jade die-cut ferns, cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. After stamping the included set’s “You are on my mind” sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock, cut it into a small sentiment label and attach on top of the ferns. Finish off the card with Flowers for Every Season Gems!
