Oh. My. Cuteness. I am just in love with this Bear Hug Card I just made. Check it out…
It all started when my bestie called upset because she has to move from Florida to upstate New York. Brrrrrr…. She’s quite bummed and so am I. I was out shopping already so I bopped into Paper Source to pick up a card for her. I saw this Bear Hug Card for almost $7 and loved the concept! I say “HUGS” all the time.
While I loved the concept, I didn’t really like this card and I thought that for $7 it was way too much for this gal! So, I went home to my trusty Cricut Explore determined to do better. And I love the result.
How I Made the Bear Hug Card
First, I set out to find an image. I knew I wanted it to “hug” so the arms had to fold. Nothing came up in the Cricut Design Studio that would work. Boo. So, I went to my favorite vector site, VectorStock.com and started searching. I found an image that would work and edited to fit my needs. It was easier to create y’all a video so here it is.
After cutting my adorable bear with my Cricut Explore, I embossed and stamped and inked. Then, I cut the arms off the back with scissors and glued! I added a picture of the back for you so you can see how the card works.
We love to hear from you! How do you make your own cards?
