This bear is to "die(cut) for"!

It's time for new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and our optional twist is Plaid!

This month we are showing our gratitude to all of our sponsors throughout 2018 in a Sponsor Showcase Month.  You will see us highlighting some of our favorite digis from our generous sponsors.  

This week I have the privilege of working with goodies from Polkadoodles!

This bag highlights the adorable Beary Cute Great Outdoors Die Set.  Although we usually show off cute digis from Polkadoodles, I thought it would be fun to share dies and some of the paper collections!

 I cut this cutie from Great Outdoors A5 Paper Pack and Die Cutting Essentials Fur/Hair/Skin Pack from Polkadoodles.  The box itself was cut from plaid paper from Little Dude Footbal/Rugby digi download and the bear's bow was cut from Work & Play 9, also a digital collection.  The box and bow were cut on my Cricut with box cut from CTMH Artiste.  I used an embossing folder in perpendicular directions to make an embossed plaid on his bow!

I finished this cute bear off with 2 gems to make eyes, some twine and jingle bells!  

Off to the following Challenges:  

Love to Craft:  AG
Die Cut Divas:  AG
Daisy Chain Challenges:  Christmas/Winter
Merry Little Christmas:  AG Christmas
Papercraft Business Challenge:  AG Opt-Christmas Animal
