Bear Hugs Valentine

This week’s featured artist from the Silhouette online store is Kristen Magee of k.becca. I used this cute bear shape and “bear hugs” phrase from her portfolio to make this sparkly Valentines card.
After opening the shapes I designed the card right in Silhouette studio so that I could get the sizing of each shape correct in proportion to the rest of the card before cutting them out.
I cut out all of the shapes and assembled the card, leaving the glitter shapes for last. Then, to get the glitter shapes I copied and pasted the “hugs” and the heart onto a new mat.  I changed the paper size to 8.5×11 and loaded a piece of double sided adhesive onto my mat, yellow side down. Next, I loaded the mat into the CAMEO and in the Silhouette Cut Settings window I selected Double-sided adhesive, changed my blade according to the settings and clicked cut.

Once those shapes were cut out, I removed the yellow backing and adhered them to the card.

Then, I removed the white covering, exposing the adhesive.

Next, I poured glitter over the shape and used my finger to press the glitter onto the adhesive in a circular motion.

Then, I tapped off the excess glitter. I love the clean lines!

If you are thinking of adding some sparkle to your valentines this year, the double sided adhesive will be your new best friend. You can find it, and the Silhouette glitter here.
