Today’s card is a way to use up some of that left over Holiday DSP and I just wanted to show you another use for it, before it is to late to pick up either the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper or the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp set both which are retiring from the Holiday Catalog.   So if you like either of these products you need to grab it soon.   Both will be gone after January 4th.   On January 5th the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure go live.

When I saw the candy cane stripped paper I thought wow that would be great for Valentines Day too.  So I have been waiting to use it just for this.

groovy Bear Love

I used the Groovy Love Stamp set from the Annual catalog. The zebra print heart went great with my animal theme.   I used the honeycomb TIEF by Stampin’ Up! for this fact too.   I mean who doesn’t see bears and think of honey and honeycombs.   Well maybe its a growing up in the South type a thing.

I loved the color combo of Real Red, Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate, and Very Vanilla.  Each one was the the bear-necessitate for this card.   Okay, I know bad pun.   But I couldn’t resist.

Card Measurements:

  • Card Base: Real Red cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Smoky Slate: 5 1/4 x 4, scrap piece for the 2″ circle
  • Melon Mambo: 2 x 4, scrap for the the 2 1/2″ circle
  • Home for the Holiday DSP: 1 3/4 x 4
  • Very Vanilla: I scrap piece for stamping, and a 1/2″ x 4 for the sentiment and a scrap for the 1 3/4″ scalloped circle.

I hope you give this card a try, and have fun doing it.   Remember the products from the Holiday Catalog are only around till the 4th. After that they will be gone.    So If you have been eyeing one of these I would grab it now.   Thankful Forest Friends has been one of my favorite stamp sets this year.   I am sad to see it go.

If you would like to order any of these products you can do so from my website 24/7.  I would appreciate your business.
