Hello there. Today I am sharing a card that I made for a friend who’s been having a rough time lately. Unfortunately, she hasn’t received this yet, and when she does, I hope it will brighten her day a little. And I’m proud to report that I made it with all NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff)! I couldn’t believe it – FOUR off my massive NBUS list!!! Thanks, Darnell, for running this great challenge. And here’s my card.
I wanted to make a pink hello card with the NBUS Polar Bear Pals stamp set that I just got a week ago. To start, a white A2 piece of cardstock was dry embossed with NBUS Softly Falling embossing folder. The bears were stamped on scraps of X-press It paper with Memento black ink, coloured wth RV and C gray Copic markers then fussy cut out. Friend from NBUS Thoughtful Messages (a gift from sweet Loll) was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. I wanted the left bear to hold it, so I cut around his arm and tucked it under.
The letters from NBUS Bold Alphabet were die cut from more scraps of X-press it paper and also from black cardstock to be stacked. The white diecut letters were coloured with the same RV Copic markers as the scarves.
The embossed panel was mounted onto a white landscape top folding cardbase before the card was assembled. The bears were mounted with foam adhesive for dimension and clear shimmer was added for some sparkle to finish.
Thank Ink you for stopping by. Have a great day!
