I'm back today with a card for Bev's (BevMom) challenge. Wowsers...it's the end of July and this is the first Christmas card that I've made! I usually make a bunch of "Christmas in July" cards, but not this year! *gasp* I guess since this was my first, I had to make it count, right? I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out! The image is Ski Bear from Whipper Snapper Designs. Way too cute! I know, I know...I say that about all of their stamps! Ha! The bear was stamped onto Neenah card stock with Tuxedo Black then colored with Copic markers. Banners were cut to line the top of the card. The paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle and it isn't even Christmas paper...talk about a perfect match! Two snowflakes were die cut, colored with Copic markers, popped up between layers then a Sparklet was placed on top. A little bit of Stickles, for the snow, completes the card.
BEAR: BV20, BG70, 0 HAT/SCARF: R85, R83, R81, BV25, BV23, BV20 SKIS/POLES: BV25, BV23, BV20 SKY: BG75, BG72, BG70 SNOWFLAKE: R85, R83, R81
Sakura Clear Glaze pen gives his nose a soft, subtle shine. I don't usually color the whole background area, but the BGs are such pretty colors, I just got carried away! I'll be back again tomorrow with another DTGD project...see ya then! (PS...this was one of my favorite projects that I made for the DTGD challenges!)
