Fairy Tales #3

When my MIL was looking through the Serendipity magalogue with me and she saw this little bear he thought he looked like a cowboy. I didn't see it at first, but the idea grew on me. I combined the new "Fairy Tales" set with an old favorite "Wild West" I also used the stamp set "Running Stitches"

Ivory Cardstock: 3.5 x4.75, 2.75 x2", scrap for hat
Brown Cardstock: 5.25 x 4", 3x 2.25", 5 x 1.25"
Green Cardstock: scrap for 3 stars, 5 x3.75",
1 1/8x5"
6 Mini Brads
Black and Brown Ink
Coloring medium
Swiss Dot Embossing folder
Paper Piercer
Big Shot

Step One:
Stamp and cut out stars (from Wild West set). Emboss 3.5 x4.75" ivory cardstock and the stars at the same time by running them through the Big Shot in the folder together.
Step Two:
Stamp, color, and cut out cowboy hat. Stamp the teddy bear on the small ivory cardstock. Color. Glue the hat in position on his head. Swipe the edges of the ivory with the brown ink pad.
Step Three:
Glue the stamped image to the center of the 3x 2.25" brown cardstock.
Step Four:
Stamp the "Running Stitch" on each edge of the 1 1/8x5" green cardstock, and adhere it to the 5 x 1.25" brown cardstock.
Step Five:
Adhere the embossed ivory to the green cardstock, and then adhere the green cardstock to the brown.
Step Six:
Adhere the brown and green strip of cardstock about 1/3 up from the bottom of the embossed ivory cardstock. Adhere the teddy bear image over this (see picture).
Step Seven:
Pierce three holes evenly through the cardfront, to the left of the teddy bear image, on the the green strip. Adhere the stars by placing them where desired around the bear image, then piercing a hole through both the stars and the card front and attaching with brads.

The cardfront is now ready to be attached to a cardbase.
