A Polar Christmas

Okay, I LOVE polar bears. I don't know why. Maybe it all started with the Coca~Cola commercials. But I think they are just adorable!! So I was thrilled to see this darling bear by Stampendous in the Stamper's Dream on-line Store. This Polar Christmas Set comes in cling with this very charming sentiment. I colored her with copics and added a bit of glitter and dimension to the dots on the package with a new fun product called Opac Gloss Gel. I just sprinkled a bit of glitter over it while it was wet.

Now, see that lined paper in the back? That was made with the Notebook Cover~A~Card bg image from Impression Obsession. I love that I can have any color notebook paper at my fingertips. For this piece, I just stamped it on Ivory cs and used my Ranger Distress inks to dirty it up with a variety of colors. I then punched the border with my EK Success Paper punch border. I love the look and it's so easy to make.

That's about it for the card. The rest is pretty self explanatory. I do have a heads up for ya though!!
