Manly Monday Bear

Welcome back to Manly Monday. Click on the name of the blog to be directed to the masculine card. The first two links I'm unable to give you a snippet of the card but please visit her blog too. She has two great guy cards to share with you. 

For this week's Manly Monday card I have this bear stamp by Stampin Up stamped in brown ink. I die cut the bear with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with distress ink. Then I matted it onto another Spellbinders die cut which is then on some recycled upholstery samples that a friend gave me. I glued the sample onto brown cardstock by Bazzill and wrapped baker's twine around the whole front panel. I secured the Baker's twine to the back and placed a tag, cut out from the Cricut and stamped with a sentiment, over the front. I the glued a bow onto the front to make them looked connected but in real life they are not.
