Beary Special Birthday

I bet you can hardly believe that I've had 3 posts in 3 days, me either ;). Today my friend Pam and I are having our cut challenge. For the first time we are using an SVG cut with our Silhouettes instead of a Cricut cut. We both have a Cricut and a Silhouette Cameo so I would imagine we will start doing a mix of cuts from both machines.

I chose the cut because I LOVE it and I have a ton of birthday cards I need to be making. This one will be for one of my nieces. This cut was one of Miss Kate Cuttables Freebie of Day cuts. It is no longer free but it can be purchased for 50 cents HERE. It is called Birthday Bear. I was SO impressed with how well the Silhouette Cameo cut the balloon string. It is so thin and cut BEAUTIFULLY.

I had heard all of these people raving about American Crafts cardstock and got some for a great deal recently. I really loved how it cut in the Cameo and I loved how easy it was to stamp on even with its pretty texture. 

I used PK-496 Everyday Character Face Parts by Peachy Keen Stamps to stamp my cute bear's face. I filled in the white spaces with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen and added some glossy accents to the eyes and nose. The adorable sentiment is from another Peachy Keen stamp set called PK-161 Happy Birthday BIG. It has a HUGE happy birthday sentiment and two smaller sized cute 'bear' birthday sentiments. I stamped this bear sentiment on the outside and the other bear sentiment on the inside. The piece I stamped the sentiment on is a die by My Creative Time. It is from the Build a Banner Kit I just lengthened it out to fit my sentiment. Then I added a seam binding bow to my bear and I was done. I hope you enjoyed my card. I can't wait to see what Pam did with this cut. 

Make sure to check out Pam's cut HERE! Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora
