Holiday Gift Bearing Polar Bear Card – Beary Merry with Neat And Tangled

By Taheerah | 11th October 2016 | 26 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!

I mentioned yesterday that I have Christmas cards on the brain. This is much to my chagrin, as I’d rather not even think about those until November at the earliest. But I’ve been seeing far too many Christmas designs and products out there and it seems to have sparked something.

Luckily for me, the Beary Merry set from the latest Neat & Tangled release was ready to lend a hand (or is that a paw?) and help satisfy that craving… at least for now. Beary Merry is another cutie set designed by Elena and it’s so cute that I wish it were a real life teddy bear so that I could hug and squeeze it. It’s just. That. Cute.


Seeing as hugging my stamp set would be weird, I thought I’d better make a card with it instead:

See, adorable.

I decided I wanted to make my bear both festive and cool, so I gave him a patterned paper treatment for him and his present. The coordinating dies for this set include cutting around his paws, so it made slipping in that present all the easier. Some simple Copic colouring on the present’s bow, and light shading on the bear (and to give him a cute scarf and rosy cheeks!) were all he needed. My card base features some light splatter and stamping to allow the bear and his cute hand lettering style sentiment to take centre stage. 

Neat and Tangled Release Week 

I do strongly encourage you to visit the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and to hop along and leave them some love! There are prizes in it for you!

I’ll be sharing release projects all this week, and I am really in love with quite a few of them, so I hope you’ll be back to check them out!

  1. Good to know that I’m not alone in resisting (or *ahem* maybe not resisting…) the urge to hug stamps that are just simply amazing! I can see why Mr. Teddy was warranting a warm cuddle: totally adorable, especially sporting a star-studded fur coat, a cozy scarf and ‘bearing’ a wonderfully wrapped gift! You’ve lifted ‘cute’ to an entirely new level! Sweetness, plus!
    PS: I bet you hugged the stamp anyway! Yayyy!! I would!

  2. Adorable! Love the idea of using patterned papers; I hardly ever think of doing that, but the effect is great. TFS your ideas and wonderful talent.

  3. What a fabulous idea to paper piece your Bear! I thought you had stamped the tiny stars at first. I love bears for winter holiday cards so he’s a winner to me!

  4. Taheerah, this is simply Adorable! AHEM…. AS FOR HUGGING THE STAMP SET…I get so few current sets, I always am pretty excited about them! So I get It! Haha Good to know I am not the only one who gets excited about something like That!
