Birthday Card - Maritime Bears Card

This card is so cute for someone with a summer birthday or to give just so. The bears are created using 3-D punchouts layered onto the blocks, thus creating a dimensional effect.



Birthday Card - Maritime Bears Card

For this project you will need:

- 1 blank white card with matching envelope
- white, navy blue and beige cardstock
- small motif punches with fish and seahorse
- double sided adhesive tape
- 3-D foam tape
- silver sticker with message
- 3-D card punchouts with maritime bear motifs or motifs of your choice


1. Cut each whole bear motif out once and cut an additional bear dress and bear top with pants out. On the backsides of the clothing, place many pieces of 3-D foam pieces. Lay aside for the moment.
2. Cut out two 5cm x 6cm (2 inches x 2.4 inches) white pieces of cardstock out.
3. Adhere both white blocks each on beige cardstock and cut each now out with a 0.5 mm border (about 1/5 inch) on all sides.
4. Adhere now the blocks onto navy blue cardstock and cut each out with a 0.25 mm border (about 1/10 inch) on all sides.
5. Adhere a bear on each block. Remove the protective paper of the 3-D foam tape and adhere a second layer of clothing onto the bears. Lay the blocks aside for the moment.
6. Cut a navy blue strip measuring the width of your card and 7 cm (2.8 inches) high. Adhere the strip longways across the card.
7. Cut a small strip of navy blue cardstock large enough to hold your message and stick message on. Add a piece of 3-D foam tape to the backside of the strip.
8. Punch out small fish and seahorse and add small 3-D foam tape pieces on the backside of each.
9. Adhere now the blocks onto the card as seen in the picture and attach the other elements.
