Papa Bear Father's Day Card

We're celebrating Fathers today over at Imaginisce. Some of the design team made Father's Day Cards.  Since making the one a few weeks ago with the folded shirt tutorial I realized that my dad is now retired and my hubby works from home, so I really needed a different card for him.  Well the Happy Camper line was PERFECT, specifically the bear.  I combined the die-cut bear, some fussy cut elements and the Spellbinders Impressabilities and came up with this...

Front of Card - Papa Bear
I used the Impressabilities "Circles" template that Spellbinders sent me and misted over it to get that cool background behind the heart. I cut out a little heart and tucked it into Papa Bear's hand, then I used glossy accents and applied a tad bit of glitter. One end of the twine is tucked in his hand (which you can see better below) and the other comes from the side around the back to tie into a little bow to keep the card closed.

Inside of Card - with his 3 bears (3 kids)

I just love to do cards that have an inside and an outside.  It folds together and stays closed with the twine only to reveal the little bears and that cute little mama bird flying around watching them. It looks like they are standing in the grass flying a kite.

Make sure to head over to the Imaginisce blog and tell them how much you love my Papa Bear card.  Once there you have a chance to win your very own Happy Camper collection!
