Pink & Main – Bear Hugs

Hello friends! It’s time for your weekly Pink & Main inspiration post! Today I went back and pulled out some super fun favorites to create with! I absolutely LOVE all of the long legged critters and squealed when I came across them as an idea for my card today.

This card came together really quickly and would be so fun to make a stack of to share with lots of friends! Quick tip: When I’m creating with these long legged cuties, I die cut my paper first and then arrange the stamp on that because those legs like to move and not line up correctly. Then I colored it with my copic markers and set it side to do a little die cutting.

I cut the background using stop sign cardstock and the polka hearts cover die. Then I glued it to a white card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue. Next, I die cut the big hugs set from white cardstock and vellum. After adhering them together I decided for dimension, because I love dimension. So I cut the word from white cardstock 3 more times and adhered them to the original.

When playing around with placement I thought it would be fun to have the legs behind the word but his head poking around the side. So I added liquid glue to everything except his head where I added foam squares. Then I carefully layered everything together and to the card front.

I wrapped some glittery twine from my stash to the top and tied it in a bow before moving on to finishing touches.

For those I just added black glaze pen to his eyes, touch of gloss to his nose and stardust stickles to his cheeks. I think the stickles is one of my favorite parts to playing with these fun critters! I love their cheeks!
