Hello friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with one big “Holiday Hug” for you! This 5″ X 7″ card includes the adorable bear from this new multi seasonal / holiday stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps. For my card, I’m using the following products:

Holiday Hugs stamps and dies

Stitched Nested Arch Dies

Winter Greenery Dies

Joyful Holiday Paper

The card base is made from 80lb Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.

To create the front panel, I cut a piece of snowflake pattern paper from the Joyful Holiday Paper pack, to the size of 5″ X 6″ long. I cut an arch from the paper using the largest die from the Stitched Nested Arch Die set. I also cut the same size arch from a red and white check pattern paper, too. Both frame and arch were secured to a white card base, leaving 1″ white space at the bottom. I added a few white dots to the snowflake paper using my white Gelly Roll pen.

I stamped, colored and cut out the bear and the cup of hot cocoa. The bear die includes a separate die for the front paws, allowing smaller images from the set to be placed in the bear’s hands. How cute is that?! I added mittens to the bear with a couple of simple curved lines at both wrists. To color the bear and cup of hot cocoa, I used the following Copic Marker colors: E59, E57, E55, R89, R46, R17, R14, R20, RV13, RV14, W3, W0, 100, C7, C5. I used the same reds to color the berries, too. I stamped a snowflake on the cocoa cup and accented it with my white Gelly Roll Pen.

I attached the bear inside the arch window. I added three snowflakes inside the arch and hand drew a string to hang them from. I added sparkly rhinestones to the centers of the hanging snowflakes and the snowflake on the cup.  I added greenery around the top of the arch window using the Winter Greenery Dies. I cut greens from green and white cardstock and mixed the two to create the swag. Berries were added at the top.

I stamped and die cut the “holiday” sentiment and attached it at the bottom of the card front. I stamped “greetings” in the 1″ white space, right below “holiday” to finish the card.
