A Little Wild Christmas Card – swinging bear

A Little Wild - Christmas Bear by Carolyn Bennie Australian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - carolynbennie.com

Today I’ve been invited by the delightful Kelly Kent to join in with her team – the Paper Adventures on their blog hop as a guest designer. It was such a lovely surprise to be invited and I couldn’t help but say yes.

The theme is ‘non-traditional Christmas’…. and I think I’ve certainly fulfilled that brief.  I also think I’ve used every stamp I own. That really wasn’t meant to happen. This card went in a very different direction than when I started it.

It was going to be a simple leafy Christmas card but now I have a bear riding a Christmas bauble through the jungle? Ok. So yes, it got weird.

I think I just got excited about using this super cute bear stamp from the A little Wild set and visiting an original card idea I had a card a little while back called my Swinging Koala card.

Here was the Video on how to make this card – watch it HERE.

  1. Thanks for hopping with us Carolyn. You’ve knocked it out of the jungle with this one!!! Love, love, love your bear. He’s not very traditional (which is perfect) but he’s very cute! Kelly x
