Happiness is a handmade card



Birthday Bear card

Hi everyone! I made a card for my friend's daughter. Her birthday isn't for a while, but I've been wanting to use the My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday for her card, and couldn't resist any longer. It'll keep, right? :)

You see the large gift-wrapped parcel in the bottom right corner? Open the card, and...

Birthday bears... yay!

  1. Hello Esther: This card is beyond adorable, love the background, did you sponged it and then splattered some water? I adore all of this little presents and balloons but that little bear, popping out on the inside just melts my heart.
    Just gorgeous.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much Maria! Yes, I used Ranger ink blending tools to sponge the background and then splattered it with water a few times before drying it and cutting out the window shapes x
