Hello bloggers, how's it goin'? I think Spring has finally arrived here in PA...HOORAY! It's about flippin' time! Now, hopefully this spring and summer will not be anywhere near as rainy as last year was...we can only hope!
Anyway, I know you aren't here to see me complain about the weather, so how about looking at a Christmas card instead?
I made this card for the current challenge we are having over at the Christmas With The Cuties blog, which is FEATURE A CREATURE. This month, we are being sponsored by
I absolutely ADORE Bugaboo images, and thanks to Jodie's generosity in giving out freebies every Friday, I have a plethora of them to choose from! It just so happens that this cute little Polar Bear is one of my favorites!
I decided on a blue and white color scheme for this card design, and I used another sheet of patterned paper from the Northern Lights 12x12 pad from Recollections. I believe I have mentioned before how much I love this paper pad! I colored the image (what little coloring there was!) with alcohol markers, and used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies to cut the image panel and layers. I had a hankering to add some ribbon to this card too, which is something I haven't done for awhile. The wider white ribbon was too plain on it's own, and the thinner iridescent ribbon was too narrow, so I solved that problem by layering the 2 together.
To match the whimsical feeling of the image, I used a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Winter Scripty Sentiments set. Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean was used for stamping.
