I needed a new baby boy card to send to a friend the other day, so I pulled out the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle. A Christmas bundle to make a baby card? Yep! The teddy bear image is perfect to use for creating a baby card especially when combined with a sentiment welcoming baby like the one in the Badges & Banners Set. I even did a little kissing on the bear!

To create the striped body of the bear, I inked up the bear image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Set with Soft Sky Ink and did not stamp it yet. I then inked up the striped badge image from the Badges & Banners Set with Pacific Point Ink. I stamped off once by stamping onto my scratch paper at my work area. Then, I pressed the badge image against the bear image and held it for a moment. This is called the kissing technique. I then lifted off the badge image, gave the bear image a little huff of breath to make sure the ink was nice an moist, and stamped onto my white card stock. Voila! a striped bear image! I carefully cleaned the bear stamp and stamped it again in Soft Sky Ink and added the face in Pacific Point Ink. After punching out the two bear images, I cut the head off the Soft Sky bear and adhered it over the head of the striped bear so he wouldn't have a striped face.
