Card A Day Blog Post: Valentine Bear

Hi everyone, here I am, with another post for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Valentine.

I made this card for Operation Write Home, and I already sent it on it's way to them about a week or so ago, so some of my measurements and colors might not be exact, but I will try the best that I can.

To start with, I used a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I then added a piece of heart pattered paper that I had in my stash, cut to 5.25"x 4" to the front of the card.

I decided to use this cute little Panda stamp from the Crafter's Companion, Party Paws, Love From Bamboo stamp set. Isn't he adorable? I got this stamp set with a voucher that I won for Crafter's Companion, when I entered to win a prize at Christina Griffith's blog, Card Making Magic

I stamped this little cutie on a piece of white card stock, then cut it down to approximately 2.75"x3.5". I colored the image with Copic Markers. I can't remember what colors I used, because, like I said, I made this card 2 or 3 weeks ago, and everything has been put away, but I do know I used 2 shades of red, and a very light pink for the heart, and a dark grey and black for the ears, paws, and feet. I matted my image onto a piece of pink card stock cut to approximately 3.5" x 4", leaving some space to the right of the image for the three little red heart Jewel Dazzles that I added. I them matted that piece to a piece of burgundy card stock cut a little larger than the top layer.  I adhered this piece to the top of the design paper that I added to the card base.

I hope you love this little guy as much as I do, and I would really love to hear what you think, so if you have the chance, please leave me a comment and let me know. Remember to stop by the Card A Day Blog each day to see what our designers have made to inspire you with. Be sure to check out our monthly challenge for the chance to win a wonderful prize!
