I made a card combining stamps from different brands. The cute bears and hives (here playing the role of Christmas ornaments) are from the sponsor for today – The Ton. I wanted a big Christmas tree, but with this sentiment, so, I combined two trees: Waltzing Mouse and Winnie & Walter; the star is Paper Smooches. The gifts are designer paper from Pinkfresh Studio.
I stamped and fussy cut all the Honey Bears in the set, masking the hearts. Did the same with the hive to create a garland for the tree. Used silver embroidery thread and passed it through some tiny holes that I made with a pin in some bears, and then adhered the ornaments.
For the background I used Gansai Tambi Starry Colors with a stencil and also random spattering. This is a 4.5” x 8.25” card.
