Polar Bear Cuteness


Hi everyone!  Is anyone else a big fan of polar bears?  I just love them for Winter cards.  I knew that I wanted to do something with the new Bundled Bear die (98947) for the new release blog blitz:


To make this card, I started with a blue notecard and taped the brand new Texture Scraped Paint stencil on top (88584).  I then added a light layer of light molding paste, but really, you could use any of your favorite texture pastes:


Next, I added some glitter while the paste was still wet:



When the paste and glitter were dry, I lightly glued the outline of the bear onto the card.  Notice I didn't glue it perfectly.  I wanted an outline to guide me where to glue all the bear parts, but I wanted to leave myself some "wiggle" room in case I wanted to move the outline around a bit:


To finish the card, I added the Merry and Bright saying B2005.

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the new Bundled Bear die.  You have until 11pm EST on Sunday, Oct 26th to leave your comment.  Winners will be announced on Monday, October 27th.  Good luck!
