My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals ~ Copic Colored ~ Distress Oxides Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

This weeks’ card is inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge # 82, and the card I made using MFT’s Polar Bear Pals. Personally, I love polar bears and I think they are one of the most majestic wild animals on this earth.

I started by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxides Ink in Salty Ocean to create the background and die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Stax’s.
The various polar bear images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I am still learning to pair my combinations and blending but I think these images did not turn out too bad.

Working on the snow banks, I used a piece of white glittered cardstock and die cut the banks using MFT’s Stitched Basic Edges 2. I adhered those pieces to the card base and added my images with some foam tape for dimension.

All there was left to do to complete this card was stamp the sentiment and add some falling snow using 3D Puffy paint. In hindsight, I would have chosen a different sentiment and maybe even heat embossed it with white embossing powder. And my falling white snow has now taken on a bluish tint from the background. And lastly, I will be very happy to finish using up the glitter paper, as it flakes terribly. Although I am happy with the design of my card, some components not so much and will note to self for future!

The inspiration for this card is MFT’s Color Challenge # 82
