As with all my cuts on the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge, I did not cut the black layer (TddyBear-s). I simply cut out two 1/2" circles and attach them to the back. For this cut also, you do not need to cut the nose, since you will cut this out in the layer with the poodle (Pear Pizzazz layer).

I also did not use the "flowers" that cut out as buttons on his costume. I instead used two mini brads.

I'm so happy with how this adorable little clown turned out. Not sure who he will go to, but it is always good to have cards on hand!

Thanks for stopping by!
