Hula Bear Card



My little niece is having a Luau for her third birthday this week. I wanted a cutsie, little girl hula girl instead of the one on Life's a Beach......so I made my own with Create a Critter and Paper Doll Dress Up. (and a Bikini top from Life's a Beach) Anyway, I like how she turned out.....just right for a little tiny girl.




First, I chose the sketch from RAQ's challenge on the Cricut board this week. I used the bear from Create a Critter cut at 3 1/4"....black regular cut.....ivory layer one.....brown layer two. Inked the cheeks and put some flowers on her ears...added a bikini top from Life's a Beach....cut at Real Dial Size 1 1/4 inches...added a flower and a gem. The skirt is from Paper Doll Dress up....regular cut at 4 1/4" and 4 3/4", inked and popped between the layers. Her lei is cut from PDDU too @ 4 1/4".....added more flowers and gems. The paper is from Me and My Big Ideas.....ribbon is American Crafts (blue and green) and Target $1 bin (orange). The metal flower slides are from Oriental Trading. Added frames cut with my oval Nesties...and pop dots. "Happy Birthday" is from Create a Critter.....doodled.



No Gypsy or Design Studio ( I don't have the latter.....and I can't figure out my Gypsy) so no cut file....but it's easy to follow with the measurements above.
