Beary Cute for PP667

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, the always lovely LeAnne is hosting our Clean-and-Simple (CAS) Challenge.

The Clean-and-Simple Challenge has a fun “Tag, You’re it!” theme this week. You can either create a card with a tag as the focal element or simply share some fab CAS tags for gift-giving. Most importantly, have fun creating! I sure hope you will take this challenge for a spin and join us over at The Paper Players. We’d love to see what YOU create!   

*I’ve shared a full supply list of products used to create this card at the end of this post.

For my project, I decided to create a cute Christmas card using the Beary Cute stamp set, coordinating Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Tailor Made Tags Dies. I started with a Balmy Blue card base layered with Old Olive and and embossed Basic White layer. The Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder is one of my favorites right now for the perfect extra detail on holiday cards. 

Next, I cut the tag from DSP and threaded some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the top. Then I fussy-cut the bears from the paper and added a stamped sentiment. The Festive Pearls were the perfect finishing touch. I popped the tag up on the card at an angle and ta-dah, this card was done and done! Don’t you just want to hug that baby bear…he’s so cute!! 

I decided to whip up a few more tags since I had all of my supplies out. I just love the little bear with his sweater on one of the DSP patterns. He was easy to punch out, so I just layered him up on a die-cut circle and added a little present. Bears can give Christmas presents, right? Well, if they can wear sweaters, they can pretty much do anything they’d like. :-)

Speaking of presents, this has to be one of my favorite patterns in the DSP. I just love the mix of colors, too. I stamped one present and cut the other two from the DSP, layered them up on a circle and created a third tag. 

Here is a look at the card and two additional tags all together. The other tags would work great for a coordinating gift, or could just as easily be turned into a card using the same background as the original. Tags really do make great focal images on cards and they are super-fun to make! 

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share your project for our ”Tag, You’re it!” Clean and Simple ChallengeWe’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday November 24th, 2023
