Stampin' Up! Bear hugs and balloon celebration card

Stampin' Up! Bear hugs card with acetate and balloons

I've been meaning to post this card for ages. But they have been very popular at fairs and in my Etsy shop, and this is the first time I've managed to make some and photograph them too.

I've mentioned before that I love this stamp set, and here I've used an acetate strip to create a window in the card. On the inside are four balloons, and I've tried to position them so that the bear looks like he's holding their strings.

The balloons are punched using the Baloon Bouquet punch, and the balloon strings on the front and inside are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. 

I also made a card using the little bear. I have found that people like these cards for all sorts of celebrations - birthdays, births, christenings.

I'm also really pleased that the Bear Hugs, Balloon Celebration and balloon punch are all carrying over to the new catalogue. Hooray!

A quick note - the Bear Hugs and Bear Hugs Framelits, and the Balloon Celebration and matching punch are available as bundles with 15% discount, but only until the end of May. In the new catalogue they are still available but not as bundles. So, if you know you want them, buy them now!
