I like gummy bears. Well, I like gummy worms, so I assume I would like gummy bears. Aren’t all the gummy critters made of the same stuff? I prefer the yellow/orange/red ones (as opposed to the clear/red/green ones) so those are the ones I tried to replicate for today’s card made with the Just Keep Swimming stamp set.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Pumpkin Pie CS to 3-1/2″ x 3-3/4″
  • Daffodil Delight CS to 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Glassine Sheet to 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS to 4′ x 5-1/2″ for the inside

Stamped with the Just Keep Swimming stamp set:

  • 3 gummy bears in Pumpkin Pie and Real Red onto a scrap of Peekaboo Peach CS – this is a three step stamp, but I used the CS as the base color, and stamped the second stamp in Pumpkin Pie, then the last stamp in Real Red
  • sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink onto the Daffodil Delight CS

Die cut using the Mini Treat Bag Framelits:

  • just the top of the little glassine bag

Fussy cut with Paper Snips:

  • 3 gummy bears

Embossed with Lucky Stars TIEF:

  • front of card base

Assembled the card:

  • glassine sheet folded into a bag big enough for the gummy bears, 1-1/2″ wide and bottom folded up 1/2″ – you can cut the top with the Mini Treat Bag Framelits either before or after you fold it
  • bears adhered to inside of bag with Mini Glue Dots – I opened up the bag, placed the glue dots on the bears’ backs, arranged them face down on the inside front of the bag, then closed the bag, so the bears were adhered to the back part of the bag and the glue dots wouldn’t show
  • folded the bag back into shape and sealed it shut in the back with Fast Fuse
  • bag adhered to Daffodil Delight CS with Fast Fuse
  • Daffodil Delight CS glued onto Pumpkin Pie CS
  • Whisper White Organza Ribbon wrapped around front of card base, adhered with Fast Fuse, and tied in a bow
  • Pumpkin Pie CS adhered to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued to the inside of the card base
