Hugs Card with Felt Bear

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I needed a card for a family that is dear to my heart and worth their weight in gold. In fact, the last time we were at a gold mine, I got them a little gold to say how much I value their friendship. So I put together this card and gift set for them:

The ‘hu’ and ‘gs’ of the word hugs interlock to close the card. When you open it, there’s a bear inside and it says Big Hearts Deserve Big Hugs! Because I keep them close to my heart, the bear has the names of the family on his heart. Awww. With fall coming, as that felt bear gets ready to hibernate, he’s taking his treasures with him! I hand cut a little tail for the bear’s backside. Tip: I keep a bag for all felt scraps and thread pieces from art and sewing projects… they make great stuffing for small felt critters!

I love this pretty paper from DCWV! It’s foiled and most sheets go well with each other. Fall in Florida us when the flowers come back and these are in muted fall colors:

I fussy cut one of the butterflies and glued it to the h. here you can see the card opening

… and closed again. Such a clever die!

  2. I saw this project on Instagram but had to come over for a closer look at all the details and now I’m even more impressed. That darling little felt bear is so adorable on its own but when you combine it with the clever card…wow!! I’ve never seen a die like that which doubles as a card clasp, and the stamped heart and bear inside are the frosting on the cake. Actually, since it’s inside the card, I guess it’s the cream in the eclair, or the fluff in the Oreo cookies, or the…well…you get the picture. LOVE this!

  3. This is very very pretty. I love the bear, number one, he’s so adorable he makes me smile whenever I see him. The muted colors of the patterned paper are lovely, and I adore the hugs cut from patterned paper. 🙂 Thank you so much for joining us at Where Creativity Meets C9!
