Ben Bear

Today's card is made using one of the new graphic sets from the Clipart Fairy. Ben's new tie 1 contains five images of the cute little bear in different poses and at only 65p for the set is great value for money. There are also lots of other Ben graphics in store including some Christmas ones.

All papers used came from Urban Roundabout Papers Set 2, the ribbon and card candy are from stash and I made the little birthday banner in photoshop. I decorated the inside of the card the same as the front, but used a different Ben graphic.

On the front I used 2 images of Ben and layered them up cutting off his back leg and arms on the top layer, the mat he sits on is embossed with a Debbi Moore Paw Prints embossing sheet which goes through the Big Shot but to be honest I was a bit disappointed with the way it came out, and I had to add a shim to get it to emboss enough to just about be able to see it.

and here is a close up of the image I used inside the card.

For the layout I used the sketch from Fetch a Sketch a new challenge blog, co-run by Ruth one of my Polkadoodle teamies, there are some fab prizes up for grabs, so go take a look.

Head over to the Clipart Fairy store and check out the rest of the Ben images, (there is also a girly version called Beth) and all the Christmas goodies that are being added daily.
