Bear Hugs

Good morning all, today is my very special nephew's 23rd birthday. Yes Jude's youngest is now 23. Gosh that must make her really really old 😜. Anyway, this is the card I am sending him, as hugs, especially Panda hugs, play a very special part of Joe's childhood, so he will appreciate it. 


The cute Panda and Koala are from the Simon Says Stamp Cuddly Critters Set. I heat embossed them with white embossing powder and then shaded them slightly with a white pencil, a Versamark pen and clear Wink of Stella.


I cut them out with their matching dies, and used an MFT background die to cut the yellow 'sun and rays' layer.


I then went for a plain white backing card and a black note card.


As I couldn't find a stamp to say what I wanted, I whipped this one up on the PC. Very simple, a black circle with white text and then cut it out with a 1 1/4 inch EK Success circle punch.


I raised the bears and the sentiment on foam pads, and then added a few black and silver sparkle enamel dots to finish it off.


Hope you like it, and Happy, Happy Birthday Joe.

Take care and I'll see you soon.
