Polar Bear Christmas Cards

Good morning friends

Using Things Up (otherwise known as Whittling Down The Stash) has been the name of the game for our holiday cards this year. These Polar Bear cards have been in progress for at least 4 years.

The Polar Bears were Cricut cut from the Joys of the Season cartridge, and I did the printed panel on the computer. To complete the cards, I simply assembled the polar bear layers and stamped a greeting on the white area of the panel. The panel was cut with a stitched panel Blueprints die and adhered to the A2 card fronts.

The eyes and ears were dotted with a clear Glaze pen so they catch the light. I used the snowflakes from the All Season's Tree, which cut 3 at a time.

I forgot to mention that I used the MISTI for the stamping. The MISTI makes it SO easy to quickly - and perfectly - stamp multiple images.

***NOTE:  I will be moving my cards and paper crafting to Painted Mountain Cards in the New Year. I've been thinking about it for a long while, and the New Year seems like a good time to make the change. I will leave this blog open, as there are frequent hits from Pinterest and over 5 years worth of cards etc to reference.
