Using 2 images from the stamp Set "Beary Special" I created a 2 page layout for my great grandson, Barry Matthew who will be arriving May 14, 2016. The title Beary Cute is appropriate as his nickname, throughout this pregnancy, has been Bear!
The frame file is from another cut file by Creative Kuts along with hearts. I colored the Bears with my new Prisma Color pencils - I like the way the bear on page 2 came out, but page 1's Bear - not too happy with the results.
On the first page I sponged the design onto the 12x12 cardstock, and than on page 2 I sprayed it using Distressed Ink Stain. I used my Fiskar paper punch to create the edge on the border; and I am trying to use up my Washi tape (don't like the tape - does not adhere like I expect it to...I end up using scor-tape under the Washi tape.)
I printed and cut the Bears with my Explore and Cricut Design Space along with the hearts, and shadows.

Here is a easel card that I had to go to youtube for instructions on how to put together. The file is from Creative Kuts
Sentiment on first heart is Adobe Photoshop Elements brush I placed on the heart, after opening the heart image in Adobe Photoshop. The embellishments on the 2nd and third hearts along with the embellie used to prop the third heart from Wal-mart craft/Valentine section that my SIL purchased for me.
Cardstock and design paper from my personal stash. I did layer the entire easel card on a scalloped heart; and than placed on a square of black card stock.
My editing of photos was done in picmonkey.com as well as Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Included with this is the link to the video I went to for instructions on putting the card together.
Thank you for stopping by to visit with me; and have a blessed week.
