Bear Easel CardHello, my name is Janice and I am new to the PPbN Design Team. I have scrap booked for over 30 years. I have two sons and two daughters plus two more daughters I claim just because they want me to be their mother, and 11 beautiful grandchildren. I hope you enjoy my first project and if you would like to see the notepad shown in the picture just visit my blog where there are directions for making one. janiceaeschliman.blogspot.com
I grouped all the pieces and made the black head layer 4.5 x 5.5 by pulling the box around pieces until the black layer was around that size. You can choose any size and adjust rest of the pattern to fit. I did not use the bottom layer because the feet were on it and I wanted to add the feet to inside of card. I used this file/http://www.ppbndesigns.com/bear-peeker/
I put together the layers just didn't place feet on bear head. I added some foam squares to the paws.
I cut a brown card 10 x 4 3/4 inches. I scored at the 2 1/2 in and the 5 in along the long side.
Fold to look like this.
Add adhesive to the bottom 2 1/2 in area, don't go all the way to the outside edge.
Place head on that lower half with the bottom edges matched up.
Open card add a lighter color to write on. mine is 3 x 4 1/2. Bend card and decide where you want the feet and attach to card.
I added a banner with Happy Birthday on it. The banner is from the Artist cartridge page 35 cut at 1 1/4in. I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday (banner) Happy Birthday Stamp.
Inked with Mocha Mama Quick Quotes Powder puff chalking ink.
Add foam squares to bottom half of banner.
Place half way on paws.
This is the notebook cover I made to go with the card for a gift. Directions on my blog.
