It's a Blast from the Past!

I can't believe another month has past...it's already time for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop. This month, Taylor has challenged us to create a Christmas card. I don't have any of the previously released Christmas sets, but I thought that I might be able to create one with Beary Special!

This is what I came up with. I had planned on using Sankari's amazing sketch, but ended up moving panels around to make things fit.

I stamped the bear and presents onto Choice Snow White, then coloured it in with my copics. Then I paper pieced his feet, ears, and a patch on his belly.

I machine stitched the layers on, added the ribbon, then the sentiment! It all fell together nicely!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to check out all the fabulous creations everyone has! The full list of hoppers is at the end of this post!

Supplies
Stamps - Beary Special (Taylored Expressions), sentiment (AmyR Stamps); Paper - Crumb Cake, Choice Snow White, Perfect Plum, Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather; Other - Copics, Ribbon, Nestabilities, sewing
