Hi friends! It’s Stefanie here and I’m sharing a second birthday card created with the Bear Family stamp set.

I wanted this card to represent memories captured with the birthday boy and parents so I used the Photo Stack dies to create some “pictures” and kept the colors soft to fit the baby theme.

I started with stamping my images using black ink and coloring them with a mix of Copics(C) and Ohuhus:

Bear brown: E40-44(C)

Pink ears: RV260, RV010

Pink cheeks: R21, RV260

Blue flowers: PB9, G410

Green leaves: GY5, GY4

Yellow flower centers: Y3

Bee yellow: Y3, Y6

Bee black: W3, W1(C)

Bee blue: B000, B0000(C)

The images were then cut out using the coordinating Bear Family dies.

Next I used one of each size of the Photo Stack dies on white cardstock and inked up the center of the die for the photo background using distress ink in Speckled Egg for the sky and distress oxide in Bundled Sage for the grass.

I propped up my images onto the photo stack dies then propped up the 2 photo frames onto my A4 card front.

I filled in the rest of the space by propping up a sentiment from the Birthday Script stamp set stamped on Kraft cardstock and the number 2 from the By the Numbers Die colored with Salvaged Patina to match the background.

For final touches I added 3 little bees from Bear Family  and some highlights using a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like how my card turned out!
