Birthday Bear Bookmark and Card

Hey There!

I’m pretty pleased with how this creation turned out. I found a bunch of bookmark bases in my Close To My Heart Stash that I had never used! Not once! I’ve made a few bookmark/card combos this week, but this one is my favorite.

I mean look at this guy. He’s so stinkin’ cute!

I am just learning how to use alcohol markers so he was good practice. I bough the Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brushes and I LOOOVE them. The each have three shades in a single marker (hence the TriBlend) so it makes it really easy for beginners to practice shading.

I fussy cut the bear, cake, hat and gift and attached them to this little plastic base.

I thought I was done, but then I realized he would look really cute on a card. Then it would be like a card and little gift in one!

I’ve made a couple other bookmark/card combo’s I’d love for you to see! Come on over and visit me on Instagram and take a peek! I post over there a bit more often, follow me if you’d like to see what I’m creating daily!

I’ve also got a little clip of this guy in action on insta. You know, as much action as a bookmark can have 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!
