Bear Hugs - December's Paper Pumpkin


With delivery services overrun by the Christmas rush, my December Paper Pumpkin kit only arrived two days ago. I put it together pretty quickly. I admit that I was not smitten with the critters except for the cute koalas, but the rest of the kit is stunning. I decided to put three of the cards together the way the kit was designed, but then I would use the background and some of the die cuts to create some alternative designs. I will show you the alternatives after Christmas and today I will display the Bear Hugs, as I call them.

I need more thank you cards and these designs work well for that sentiment, so I went to my Massive Thanks stamp set for some alternate words to use.

  • I love the colour and design of this card base and the accompanying designed circle die cut. I will definitely get a lot of use out of the rest of them.
  • These little koala bears are adorable, so I will be using them as well in my alternate cards, either together or separately! The cupcake is definitely usable as well.
  • The sentiment is stamped in the coordinating Rich Razzleberry ink.

  • This bear looks okay on the card, but when I first saw the die cut, I was not very impressed. Let's just say the flowers cover up the least attractive attributes of the critter.
  • Again, the background and die cut panel behind are gorgeous, and I have so many ideas for alternatives.
  • The sentiment is another from Massive Thanks stamp set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry!.

  • Same story with this little raccoon. I wasn't and am still not enamoured with the little guy, even though he looks better on the card than by himself, but the card base and die cut background are beautiful and I'm excited for the possibilities!
