Teddy Bear Santa Christmas Card

The bear motif used for this card came from a paper napkin. What a cute motif for a Christmas card. If you do not have such napkins in your area, you can substitute other bear motifs from other sources such as used Christmas cards.



Teddy Bear Santa Christmas Card

For this project you will need:

- white 13.5 x 13.5 square card
- paper napkin such as the one below (the napkin used has 4 different animal motifs on it)
- paper napkin glue
- flat and soft paint brush
- baking paper (to protect ironing surface)
- iron
- white and red cardstock
- Cuttlebug or other embossing machine
- embossing folder from Cuttlebug or Sizzix with dots
- 3-D foam tape

Paper Napkin with Animal Motifs

1. To prepare the bear motif from the paper napkin, you must first brush an even coat of paper napkin applique glue onto a piece of white cardstock that is larger than the motif itself. The cardstock may curl up while drying. This is normal and it will get flatter again.
2. Remove all but the top printed layer of your paper napkin and discard the rest. Place the paper napkin motif onto the dried cardstock. Place a piece of baking paper over the motif and then iron the paper napkin onto the cardstock. Once it has cooled down, cut the motif exactly out. Place 3-D foam tape on the backside of the motif and set aside for a minute.
3. Cut a 9.5 x 9.5 cm square out of red cardstock. Cut a 9x9 cm square of white cardstock. Emboss the white square and then adhere it centered onto the red square. Adhere the squares then centered onto the card.
4. Remove the paper backing of the 3-D foam tape on the back of the motif and then adhere it to the card.
5. Stick your sentiment over the bear motif.
