Sparkling Polar Bears

Hi there everyone. There is a new challenge starting at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge . The theme this time is – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas.

I hope you can come and play along with us, and get your stash ready for the end of the year. There is some fabulous inspiration from the Design team, and here is my card:


I started by die cutting the polar bear the baby using Creative Expressions ‘Paper Cuts 3D collection – Polar Bear‘. I didn’t use the 3D elements to stand the baby in front of the parent, but instead used some glittery silver twine – as though the baby is being pulled along on the sled.

I added white glitter card behind the animal die-cuts, and also added the red glittery scarf and hat.

This card is large – I wanted a narrow and long card, so this a A4 sheet creased length-wise.

I masked the middle section of the card and ink-blended the two blue panels with Distress Oxides, then splashed some water for added interest.

The black eyes are Nuvo drops……and I added them when the card was completed and put together – gosh my heart was in my mouth that the container didn’t do a Nuvo-drop burp on me!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery.
