Jack, the Bear

Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions New Product Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  Be sure to "hop" through the different blogs for some creative inspiration!        

If you arrived here from Krista's Crafty Corner, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using new products featured in the Seasonal Expressions 2

Since my grandson needed a card for his mother for Mother's Day, I thought this adorable bear from the Jack-Cardmaking stamp set would be perfect.  Both the bear and his "bear hugs" sign were cut using the coordinating Thin Cuts, so no detailed and time-consuming cutting was necessary.  It is so simple to cut the perfect shape using the Thin Cuts die cuts along with my Cutttlebug.  

The fun papers used for this card are from the Jack paper packet, and the sentiment is included in the Short & Sweet stamp set.  Layout of the card was inspired by Pattern #20 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
