Hi Everyone! Here's a cute little set of mini cards  to have on hand for baby gifts. I think they would make a perfect shower gift to give the mom-to-be for thank you notes. Bear Hugs stamp set 116966 is used and is an optional Sale-a-bration item. See back of the SAB catalog for Main Idea Catty stamps. Just remember to use the SAB item number when choosing! Bear Hugs SAB #123895

All four minis are made using just a half sheet of 12"x12" Whisper White cardstock. Take a piece of 6"x12" whisper white card stock and cut making 4 (four) 6" x 3"

To make:
Stamp bear image four times on scrap whisper white. Color using Stampin' Markers in Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. I used the bright yellow from my Stampin' Pastels. My yellow in the kit is a fond farewell, but Daffodil Delight is a great sub. Trim image to a 1 3/4" square. Layer with coordinating 2" x 2" cardstock. With the 2-way Glue Pen, add adhesive and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Shown are two glitter options. Two cards are made with the glitter on the body and another two the white sections were glittered. I think my preference is glittering the body.

You could stop there, but you know me! 🙂 I love to emboss so run the front of the mini cards through the Big Shot using Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

Add image using dimentional foam dots.

Here are two other versions. Besides coloring the entire image, you can use the embossing folder slightly different.

To the right, I stamped, colored and then embossed the embellishment vs the card base. P1050528
And here (sorry the pic is slightly out of focus), I ran the entire card front through using the Square Lattice embossing folder. (no dimentional).

Thanks everyone and Happy Crafting!~ Dee
