Christmas Card Challenge Week 5

Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :) 

Today marks the beginning of another challenge at 

The challenge is:

Snow! I love all things snow, including the cold it brings, as long as I can stay warm inside ;) lol! I decided to make a card that had a snowy scene.

I adore these Polar Bears and couldn't wait to stamp out an entire Polar Bear family! To create my snow background layer, I used some texture paste with a little glitter added in over a snow falling stencil. I put that piece off to the side and stamped out my Polar Bears. I colored them in with my Copics and then fussy cut each one out. I cut some snowy hills out using a die and stamped my greeting along the bottom of one of the hills. I trimmed my snow background panel once it was dry, added some ribbon and attached to my card front. I added the back snow hill and the Papa Bear and then popped up the front snowy hill with the Mama Bear and Kiddos. The Santa hat that Papa Bear is wearing actually came from a completely different stamp set. I love when I can get more use out of my stamps by mixing and matching :)

Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :) 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it :)
I hope you have a great crafty day!
