Today's card was created for the latest Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. The challenge was to create a fun winter theme. I realized after I saw the inspiration photo that I'd not used my Recollections Polar Pals stamp set all year to create a single card and thought this challenge would be the perfect excuse to remedy that. I started by prepping a piece of white cardstock with my EK Success anti-static tool and stamped the snowflakes from the stamp set using Versamark clear ink and then heat embossed them using some Recollections embossing powder in snow white. I then inked the panel to create a sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in broken china. I die cut a snowy slope using a Paper Smooches edge die and some more white cardstock. I stamped the polar bear and the snowman onto Copic-friendly cardstock, colored them using my alcohol markers, and fussy cut them out leaving a white border around the outer edges. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto the snowy bank, adhered the snowman behind it using my Zig 2-way glue pen. Using my Copic BG10 marker I created a small lake onto the snowy bank and popped my polar bear up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I love how adorable this card turned out and hope you like it too!
