Die Cutting Tip: Don't Forget about Felt! Altenew Mini Delight Polar Bear Stamp and Die Set

Hi Friends! If you're looking for a way to spice up your cards, might I suggest die cutting materials other than cardstock, including felt. Especially if you have a die for an adorable furry polar bear!

Today I'm part of an Altenew Instagram hop to showcase this new Mini Delight: Polar Bear stamp and die set! We'd love to have you stop by and follow along for all the inspiration, and of course prizes.

When you have a nice focal point like this fuzzy bear, you don't need a lot of other items on your card. For this one I used the Striped Circle Stamp to make the sharp background, and some star dies from the Layered Star die set (on sale now!)

The snow drift is easily cut by hand, and is a convenient spot to stamp one of the sentiments that comes with this set. I stamped the facial features onto the felt bear to get an idea of where they should be, and then I went in with a felt tipped black pen and darkened those lines up.

Similar formula here, only this time I used a stencil to make a pattern resembling a cold, whipping, winter wind. Of course the polar bear is "staying cozy" due to his warm coat of fur.

To emphasize the cozy felt polar bear even further, I die cut a few additional layers of polar bears and adhered them underneath the felt. He's so fun to touch!

 Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by the IG hop as well!
