MFTeaser - Fred Bear Gives Comfort

Welcome to day two of seven fabulous days of MFT Teasers!!! Be sure to hop over to Kim's blog for a full list participating designers.

I made a card using the sweet Fred Bear Gives Comfort. I adore Fred and I know this card will make someone smile when they're going through a rough patch.

Fred is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair 6x6 pad. I grounded him with a little strip of grass which I cut from sour apple felt using the fresh cut grass die-namic. The layout is SSS136.

Do you spy any new die-namics? That's right...the sentiment is stamped on cream card stock which I cut out with the new Mini Tabs Foursome die-namics. These smaller versions of the original tabs are perfect for smaller sentiments!!

Also, that's a new flower called the Fringed Perennial die-namic. It assembles like the prima donna petals so the dimension is built right in. I added a pink rhinestone to the center for a little sparkle. If you like these new die-namics, just wait til you see the inside...

...look at the gorgeous new By The Letters die-namics!! Swoon!!! The possibilities are endless for these alpha dies!!
