I was giggling the whole time I made this card!

Here’s how it came about: as soon as I saw this snarky sentiment from the Sending Holiday Cheer set an idea popped into my head to make a card-in-a-card using the Mini Note die and it had to be done! HAD to!

I decorated the mini note with dots using the berries from the Holiday Sprigs set — love getting more from my supplies like this! Then I added a detailed border with the Essential Squares for Stitching and finished off the front with some holly on black cardstock to keep it simple.

Now for the inside of the mini note:

This Bear is from Bear Ware Grand Tour and he fits perfectly on the mini note!!! Happy dance!

I wanted to give Bear a CARD, and I figured it was easy enough to draw — so I lightly sketched it first with pencil and then went over it with a marker. Don’t be afraid to draw simple shapes like this my friend!

I finished off Bear with a little glitter on his nose, the heart, and to make snowy ground! Can’t wait to pop this in the mail!
