That's right folks, it's NOVEMBER 2017!!! What the HECK happened to this year?!? I can hardly believe that we are 8 short weeks from Christmas (according to QVC anyway!), and the Hallmark Channel is playing it's Countdown to Christmas movie series.
Speaking of how many weeks there are until Christmas, are you ready to send out those cards to friends and family? Have you joined us every month at CHNC Extra to help build up your stash? If not, you'll just have to work a little bit harder these next couple of weeks to finish up. But anyway...here is what I have to show you for my contribution to the CHNC Extra November challenge:
Christmas Bear was my image of choice for my card this month. I decided to try "digital masking" (that's what I'm calling it anyway!) using my Silhouette Cameo program. The bear in green was the png file, and the bear in red was the jpeg file. I just flipped the jpeg file around and situated it next to the other one to make it look like a pair of bears sitting there, looking all cute! I am really happy with the result!! I used alcohol markers to color the bears, and added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle brush pen to the white parts of the hats and coats. I die cut the image with Spellbinders' Labels Eight, and then used the die to trace and cut a black mat. The red polka dotted paper comes from the Love Nicole Seasons Greetings 6x6 pad. Added another black mat behind that layer, and glued the whole thing to a white A2 card base.
