Felt Teddy Bear Card Set

Good morning! I'm sharing a little set of cards I made with a fun die from Simon Says Stamp One of a Kind Release, also paired up with sentiments from a very popular stamp set from the same release! As soon as I saw the adorable Picture Bear Wafer Dies I thought they would be so fun to die cut from felt, and they were just as fun as I hoped!

I did two of each monochromatic color schemes - the first one using the Green Bundle of Taylored Expressions Green Felt. I die cut each one from white cardstock first, and taped it together from the back. Then I die cut a light and darker shade of the felt, and swapped out the pieces so they are the reverse of each other. No waste! 

{{{TIP: I used my Tonic Retractable Needle Tool to pick up some of the smaller pieces (like eyes) and set them in place - worked like a charm!!!}}} 

Once I had them pieced together, I taped them on my white bases to hold everything firmly and have something sturdy to attach to my cards. I

The second color scheme is the Peach Bundle of Taylored Expressions Felt. For both cards I die cut a Stitched Banner from a MFT 6x6 paper pad, mounted that on the bottom of my horizontal white card base, then mounted the bear over the top, tying a bow of jute twine around it's neck as I taped it on the card front.

I finished off by rounding the top left corner, stamping a sentiment on each from the Bouquet of Thanks Stamp Set, and added a few sparkling clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish them off! Can you see the texture from the felt? So fuzzy and soft - they would make fabulous cards for a baby shower as well!
