Hello friends! I love finding new ways to use the Mama Elephant Book Buddy die cut critters to cards. These dies were made to be used to create bookmarks but I love using them in card designs. Visit THIS post for a kitty birthday card or THIS post for a kitty rainbow card. Today I combined the Sky Bursters Frame with the adorable bear Book Buddy for a sweet baby card.

Watch the creation of this sky bursters book buddy baby card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The Sky Bursters Frame was die cut from smooth white cardstock, keeping the oval and frame together with post it tape. The edges of the frame were masked off with post it tape as well. The background was inked with Broken China and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. Water from a Distress Sprayer was spritzed over the background and blotted dry with a paper towel. Once completely dry a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Faith Stamp Set was stamped along the bottom edge with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The Sky Bursters Frame hanging stars and moon were die cut from smooth white cardstock, Hero Hues Canary Cardstock, and Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust Cardstock. The glittery stars and yellow moon were layered over the white die cut piece. Foam Adhesive was adhered to the back of the hanging stars.
The bear Book Buddy was die cut from Hero Hues Chestnut Cardstock, Hero Hues Peony Cardstock, Hero Hues Pitch Black Cardstock, and Lawn Fawn Paper Bag Cardstock. The bear's body was adhered to appear to "hang" over the stars and moon. Shading was added to the face and body with Copic Markers. Glossy Accents was adherex to the eyes and nose. Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were applied to the moon.
Additional stars were die cut from Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust Cardstock and scattered throughout the design. Pretty Pink Posh Mini Silver Star Confetti were layered over some of the cardstock stars and throughout the background to finish the design.
