A Beary Merry Christmas To You....

Grin & Bear It
The original plan was to make a window sheet ornament,
but these cute little images really needed room to decorate so I left the ornament window open.
This card is for 

With our wonderful sponsor

Here is my DT card for Make It Monday's Challenge
Using Beary Merry Christmas from
Cupcake Cards & Craft

Fold a 6"x 6" cardstock on both sides to meet in the back evenly.
Select another cardstock solid or DP of the same size and adhere it onto the white cardstock.
Cut with a Spellbinder's Nestabilities Die, your window shape of choice, through both sheets of paper,
being sure to save one of the cut die shapes to use as your ornaments "roof' or topper.
Adhere the back sides together and decorate your ornament.
I used a hat pin for the hook and pierced through ribbon to make the hanger.  
There was a gap between the front and back of the ornament so I just folded a piece of cs into 3 sections and adhered one edge to the inside front to make a "stage" of sorts and then piled on mica flakes for decoration.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you at 
for another inspirational linky party.
Here is my
from last weeks AMAZING entries.

You are killing me!!! I had just decided on gifts for my Mom and sisters (homemade of course) and then I see this! My Mom had the idea of dioramas one year using cheese ball cans and we had so much fun with them. She still puts them out each year and this reminds me so much of that craft project that now I HAVE to make these instead!!! Your bears are wonderful and I agree that it wouldn't be the same with a window... they might get claustrophobic and there's nothing worse than a claustrophobic bear!

Lori said...

Wow, this is amazing! So clever how it's put together and all the details are just perfect!

Tammy said...

This is ADORABLE!! I love the little Christmas scene you've created! Awesome project!
Hugs, Tammy

Hi Lisa
First and very important, thanks for the great comments,I may give you a giggle or two but honestly Lisa you just WoW me each time you post up, and it seems I am not alone in this opinion......
I am thinking you may be on a higher wave length to the average soul, (me being one of them), as I see your creations as full of life and happiness, you have a wonderful vivid imagination with the personality to match I suggest. Your Ornament from the digital kit is outstanding and I know my little Grand daughter would beam if she saw this, you have given me inspiration once again my friend, if I do manage to make one I will let you know!!!
Don't hold your breadth though, I always think I can do things only to realise I fail miserably!!!!
