Cup of Cocoa, Anyone? Card By Jenny

Hi! It's Jenny Fruchey from Jen's Crafty Place here to share with you my winter card.
Today's sweet bear is a cut file from Bear Holding Hot Chocolate. He is a very easy file to cut out and assemble. It is a great card for a winter birthday or just a wintery hello!

 Let's make the card!

1. Open the file and adjust the bear to measure 4.25 inches. My card is 4.5 x 6.5. It fits into an A7 envelope without any extra shipping.
2. Cut the bear pieces out in desired colors.
3. Shade each cut piece with ink. I used Memento Dew Drops.

4. Assemble the bear. I used dimensional glue dots on the cup. Add some dots of white paint to check and eyes for high lights. I also added a rhinestone to the snowflake for some added bling.

5. For the papers: Red base is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2; Brown 4 1/4 x 6 1/4; Decorative Brown Stripe 4 x 6;
 Black 3 5/16 th x 4 13/16 th; Decorative Red Plaid 4 1/4 x 6 1/4.
6. Layer all the papers and adhere with tape and use dimensional pads to pop the bear up off the mat.
7. For the word, "cheers" I use the Sizzix Thinklits Drop-Ins.  I cut off the word HOLIDAY and just used CHEERS. Attach it to the top right of your card.
8. You can use anything to decorate your card front. I used some faux enamel dots I made from melting some Perler beads.
