This cute little teddy is Beary Happy Bear from Kaz Kraftz. The placard that he is holding is blank so you can put your own message in it.

The little fella is coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and I have added a furry texture using various shades of brown and pouncing on it with a lighter shade so it creates a rough furry look to it. I cut around the image and added some 3D foam. Using a new set of dies from X Cut I created a mat from iridescent silver card.

I used a sheet of pale blue card for the base and added some star embossed card from Kanban. I used a strip of holographic card I have had in my stash FOREVER to add a bit of New Year pizazz. I then added some peel off stars around the bear to tie it to the backing card.

I decided it needed a little something so added a die cut star embellished with some faux stitches, bakers twine and some curling ribbon.

I do hope that you had a fabulous Christmas and that the New Year has started off well for everyone J
