My Favorite Things

Beary Christmas!

Hi there! Super excited to share my latest Christmas card! I don’t know if it’s the color combo on this one or that polar bear, but this is one of my favorites so far.

To start, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock with the largest rectangle die from the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies and I airbrushed a purple gradient starting from the top using Copic BV31, BV01 and BV02. I then taped a Hero Arts Abstract Waves stencil over the piece and airbrushed another gradient from the top down using BV01, BV02 and BV13. I really like how this pattern worked with the MFT Stitched Mod Square Stax die-namics that I used next for the polar bear scene.

I die-cut the smaller mod square from white cardstock and airbrushed the water with BG000 and the sky with W0. I matted this piece on the next larger mod square stax cut from a dark purple cardstock. I die-cut the iceberg from a white textured cardstock using the MFT Icebergs die-namics and pressed it on a Versamark ink pad. Then, I heat embossed the iceberg with clear UTEE. It gave it that perfect icy look and texture.

For the ice that the bear is skating on, I die-cut an oval from white cardstock using the MFT Oval Shadows die-namics and added just a hint of Copic BG11 on each end and then covered those areas with Glossy Accents for a little shine. I colored the polar bear from the MFT Polar Bear Pals stamps with Copics and used the coordinating dies to this set.

To finish the card, I die-cut various snowflakes from white glitter cardstock and a teal shimmery specialty paper using the MFT Layered Snowflakes die-namics. I stamped a sentiment from the MFT Polar Pals stamp set in Versamark on a piece of teal paper and heat embossed with detail white embossing powder. I die-cut this piece using the MFT Stitched Sentiment Strips die-namics. I then matted it on a darker teal cardstock and cut a thin border around the edges to help it stand out a bit more.

Hope you enjoyed my card today and Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to all here in the US!

Thanks for stopping by!
