Popcorn the bear wishing a happy birthday
Popcorn the bear is back to wish you a happy birthday! This little cutie is going to my friend Ruth as part of her series of bear cards. I created two similar versions of this card, each using core'dination cardstock and my Stampin' Up punches.
The packages were time consuming to color with my Copic markers, but were actually a great coloring exercise. I learned a lot about what my markers can and cannot do. I really enjoyed the plaid package - easy to do one color at a time. I used my white gel pen to add the dots to the blue package.
I added a small Party Time phrase to the front of the card using a stamp that came with the Popcorn set and Stampin' Up ink and oval punch. I finished the oval with dots and dashes in white pen.
I finished off the bottom edge with a Stampin' Up border punch and a bit of lime green ribbon. I actually made two versions of this card and did not use floral print ribbon on the other card. I was hoping that the floral ribbon feminized this card a bit.
