Hi Everyone! I trust you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are now prepared to enjoy the Christmas season. I decided to make my card using the Toyland Bear stamp set 674. I received and big cuddly teddy bear for Christmas when I was seven. He was nearly as big as I was and I loved him. I even handed him down to my boys when they were little. He was truly loved for a long time! This stamp set reminds me of him. 

 I had fun making my card with many layers of dies by Spellbinders and pop dotting them on top of each other. The white die is an svg cut file.

I added shimmer to the card by patting a Versa Mark ink pad on the green dies and adding Sparkle embossing powder EP107. Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft SS107 was used on the teddy bear's stomach.

April, I never would have guessed you started with an embossing folder! Your Toyland Bear is adorable with all the pink then surrounded by layers of teal or blue. Such a beautiful card with all the layering and sweet bear.
