Christmas in July 8 - Beary Christmas (TCPTUES219)

Today's card is for TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES219) which is Susan's Stamp/CutUps challenge to use any "bear" stamp and either the Apron or Queen of Hearts Border CutUps. Since I am still working on my Christmas In July cards, I decided to use Big Bear, as he is a favorite and will always be in my Christmas rotation. I combined him with paper from the new Authentique Festive 6x6 pad and actually wound up using the Apron Border CutUps along with the Hearts Border which is different from the Queen of Hearts CutUps.  And if you look close I drew him a cute little heart with my Copic Multiliner pen and then colored in with Copics.

Christmas Card Tip of the day: Draw simple icons or pen-stitching to your stamp images for additional interest.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Authentique dp, PTI buttons, May Arts twill, Queen and Co. Rox, Copic Markers
Copics: W00, E81, R22, R24, R27, E41, E41, E44
