North Pole Polar Bear




Hello! I hope your weekend is off to a good start! I am on a little mini vacation with the family this weekend. We have ventured up into northern territory to check out the pretty fall colors. This is one weekend where it is finally starting to feel like fall. It has been unseasonably warm. I know a lot of people love that, but not this cool weather girl :)

Anyway, I have a card to share with you today I created with some fun My Favorite Things products. I bought this cute Polar bear stamp last year, and have had so much fun playing with it a year later! It's still new and fresh to me! 


I colored this handsome guy with Copic markers and cut him and the sign out with the matching Die-namics. I cut out a circle with the Radial Stitched Circle STAX die-namics and sponged a bit of Summer Splash dye ink in the center. I cut out another circle the same size with the same die, and used the Stitched Snow Drifts die-namics to cut a small snowy hill that would fit along the bottom of the first circle. I then mounted the snowy hill, my polar bear guy, and North Pole sign with foam tape. 



I  cut a piece of patterned paper from the Calm & Cozy paper pack about an inch and a half wide, and glued that across my white card base. I stamped the sentiment in black licorice ink and then adhered the circle to the card with foam tape. I added a few 4mm clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

All of the products I used for this card are listed and linked below. I hope you have a wonderful fall weekend! 

Hugs,

Kay :)
