Crossed Stitched 3-D Bear

Hello! Hope you are all doing wonderful and getting time with your stamps!!
The card I have here is another one for the challenge tryout for to be a Guest Designer for a month, the details are on Gina's blog. The colors I used are Lemon Drop and Creme de Menthe.
The stamp set I used is by Rupa Shevde "Oh Baby!" from Gina K. Designs. This is just an adorable set perfect for the new baby. The bear image I did a 3-d look by stamping the image twice, coloring the image. I cut out the feet and attached it using pop-dot, to give the 3-D effect.
I used some floss and crossed stitched around the opening. I haven't done cross stitching for a long time but I love that look on baby things.

Here is a closeup of the bear.

Card Details:
Stamps: Oh Baby!
ink: Memento black
Card stock: Gina K. Pure Luxury
Patterned paper: M.S.
Accessories: copic's, floss, nestablilties and ribbon
I may be back with another card for this challenge.

Hope your week is fantastic and thank you for stopping by.

Awww...this is SO pretty! Love it! I may have to CASE it in a few months - have a job for about 100 birth announcements (yup, again!), and I think this is just delightful! Hugs, Geri!
