A little something with Baby Bear

Welcome to part 3 of Baby Week! Today I am featuring the Baby Bear stamp set with the True Gentleman DSP! While I was looking thru my Designer Series Paper stash, I saw the plaid paper and thought it would be great to use for a boy card. For this particular card, I am making the Joy Fold Card that my friend and fellow demonstrator, Rachael Rife aka Rachthestamper, featured last October (you can head over to her blog post here). I made a birthday card for a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday and wanted to recreate this card. I will post a picture of that card at the bottom of this post!

The card base is in Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½” and again at 2 ¾”:

The inside base is in Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 7 ½” and scored at 3 ¾”:

For the card base layers, I used the plaid design from the True Gentleman DSP, one piece cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and two pieces cut at 4” x 2 ½”:

The inside card layers are in Very Vanilla cardstock, 2 pieces cut at 3 ½”:

I stamped the bear image on one of the Very Vanilla pieces, the stamps are numbered 1, 2, and 3, I started with #3 in Chocolate Chip ink, #2 in Crumb Cake ink, and #1 sponging on Crumb Cake ink. I then used some of the Timeless Textures stamp in Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake inks around the edges. This piece is then adhered to outside of the Crumb Cake inside base layer:

The sentiment is also from the Baby Bear stamp set, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on the other Very Vanilla layer, and then adhered to the inside of the Crumb Cake inside base layer:

The plaid DSP is then adhered to the Night of Navy card base:

I used Multipurpose Glue on the back of the Crumb Cake base layer so it would give me some time to position it on top of the card base:

The outside sentiment is from the Moon Baby stamp set, stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out with the 2nd smallest oval, layered on top of Night of Navy cardstock, cut out on the 2nd smallest scalloped oval, both from the Layering Ovals Framelits:

This is then positioned on the front flap so it will hold the Crumb Cake flap, adhering Stampin Dimensionals on the left side of the oval. I then used a piece of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine, folded in two, tied in a bow, and adhered with Mini Glue Dots:

Below is a picture of the card I created last October, this really is a fun card to make for any occasion by changing up the paper and stamp sets!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!

So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
