Hi crafty friends! Charlene here from Dream Craft Create. Thanks for joining me for more fun holiday inspiration during the Christmas Countdown!
For today’s card I paired the Find Your Northern Lights Stamps with the A Polar Bear Winter Celebration Stamps and Dies and Matching Misshapen Stitched Circle Dies.
First, I ink blended green, blue, and purple ink on the diagonal using a large enough piece of cardstock to cover a mini slimline card. I used my heat tool to dry the ink completely before moving on to the next step.
Once my panel was dry, I stamped several of the stamps from the Find Your Northern Lights set in embossing ink. I then heat embossed the stamped images using clear embossing powder. Now the beautiful colors were trapped under the melted embossing powder!
Next, I blended black ink over most of the panel. I then used a microfiber cloth to wipe away the ink from the embossed images. This made the colors reappear – I love this effect!
Using the small rectangle from the Mini Slim Line Double Stitched Rectangles, I die cut the card panel. I also used the large rectangle to die cut two panels in white cardstock. I glued my ink blended panel onto one of the large panels.
Next, I took one of the large panels and die cut the bottom using the Matching Misshapen Stitched Circle Dies. This created a hill for my polar bears to sit on. I stamped a cute little sentiment onto the hill and popped it up on the bottom of the card using Extra Wide Foam Tape.
I stamped and colored the cute polar bears from the A Polar Bear Winter Celebration Stamps and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I then popped them up on my card using more Extra Wide Foam Tape.
All that was left to do was add some bling using sequins from the All About the Galaxy Sequin Mix!
I hope you find some time to craft today, and that my card inspires you. You can find more cards using products from Picket Fence Studios on my blog. All the supplies I used are listed below. Happy crafting!
So pretty! Love the northern lights effect, and the bears are adorable!
