Pen Pal Bear Stationary by Karla

Hello friends! Karla back today with a cute way to send some happy mail to a friend! While we are all socially distancing, I think we are also looking for ways to still connect with others. What would be better than to send some mail the old fashioned way, letting someone know we are thinking of them and we care! I thought I'd use the sweet Gerda Steiner Designs Pen Pal Bear digital stamp to make some stationary to send to a new pen pal of my own and I even made a coordinating card!

I opened up the digi stamp and positioned both the image and the sentiment in Word to fit on a piece of printer paper. Then I used the Watermark feature to add the image again centered on the page. I thought this was a cute addition! 

I coloured in the bear with coloured pencils, using some pencils from my kids' art drawer. This guy is so cute - he would be great added to a teacher card or for your kiddos to send to their friends!

I also printed the image out on white 65 lb cardstock that I ran through my printer, and I coloured it with Copic Markers this time. I added some fun papers to a card and some pretty diecut circles stamped with a friendly Hello from a Sizzix set. After popping this cutie up with foam tape I added a few sequins and my set is ready to go! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! You can check out both the clear and digital stamps in the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop and have fun creating your own happy mail!

Hugs,
Karla
