Wishing You Were Here
Posted on December 29 2017
Hello, again! It's Andrea back with you today. I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready to stop using my Christmas stamps. However, instead of making a holiday card with them, I created a "missing you" type card instead.
I stamped the adorable polar bear and sign from North Pole with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics. After die-cutting the images, I added some highlights with a white gel pen, some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella, and some shine with Glossy Accents on the bear's eyes and nose. Onto the sign I stamped a sentiment from Wishing You with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat-embossed it.
I trimmed the polka dot paper from the Winter Land Paper Pack to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to a white card. From white glitter paper, I die-cut the snowflake border from the Snowy Day Border Die Set. Using the coordinating die, I die-cut a snowy hill from white cardstock. After adhering both die-cuts to my card, I added my stamped images, popping up the bear with foam tape. With my Copics I added some shading underneath the bear.
