Teddy Bear Punch Card

Hi there! Been browsing thru different blogsites and I found this. It was a teddy bear punch card - no instructions at all - but I figured that I can use the following to recreate it:

Face - one piece of 1 3/4" circle punch
Ears - two pieces each of 1" and 3/4" circle punches
Eyes - two pieces of 1/2" circle punches plus two pieces of two halves of 1/2" circle punches (hahaha, is that as clear as mud?)
Muzzle - two pieces of 3/4" circle punch
Nose - small heart from Heart to Heart punch.

I also changed some elements from the original card. I used Chocolate Chip cardstock as my base and layered it with Pretty in Pink. The Whisper White cardstock layer was cranked thru my Big Shot (using the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder) for some extra texture. I tied a pretty pink satin ribbon as Teddy's bow and stamped "Small Wonder" and punched out using the Wide Oval punch. Now I have a card ready for a baby shower or new baby events! Change the pinks into blues and I got myself a card for baby boys too! Give me some time and I will make treat bags too! :-)

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you like it!
