Cricut Stand and Salute Patriotic Teddy Bear Card

Pin It
I love the teddy bears on the Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge and couldn't resist this patriotic bear! She is just too cute in her little dress!  I used some rhinestones on her bows for fun and a glittery star behind her as an accent piece.

The teddy bear from the Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge was cut at 3-1/2". The frame was cut at 5-1/2" and the star was cut at 1-3/4"- both were from the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge.  

I did manipulate the frame in the Cricut Craft Room to get it to layer and also to create the white banner section.  All that could be done by hand cutting and cutting another frame at 4-1/2" for the white banner part.

Here is this week's giveaway:

  4. Adorable...love that bear. Yes...I've made a few so far. I sprinkle them in here and there when I'm creating. I hate the pressure that December brings. I try to have all gifts, wrapping , baking, cards and decorating done in November. I usually get everything done except for a few of the gifts. I usually have a few left to buy in December. I keep my fingers crossed that this year I'll get that done too.
