Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of card stock, your choice in color to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score it in the middle at 4 1/4″. Fold score line and make a pencil mark on the front of the card at the top and bottom of the card at 2 1/8″. For the bottom of the card measure over 1/4″ from the left and right of the mark you made and cut a V through both layers. Now for the top measure over 1″ from your pencil mark to the left and right and mark. Now measure 1″ down, mark that and cut out that section through both layers.
2. If you wish you can ink up all the edges with a little
darker ink. Add a semi-circle under the strap with a
marker and then add a black 1/2″ circle anove it with
a dimensional. Repeat for the other side.
3. Out of coordinating card stock cut a piece that
measures 2″ x 2″. Then cut it to look like a pocket
and ink up these edges too. With a skinny black pen
add stitches to the pocket and adhere to the card
with dimensionals. (Keep the dimensionals to the
side so you can add the bear later). Punch out two
black dots with a hole puncher and add to the
pocket.
4. Lastly stamp the baby bear from bear hugs stamp set in black ink. Color him in soft suede and cut out. Adhere him in the pocket and then add a piece of whisper white card stock to the inside of the card.
