I'm desperately trying to get my Christmas cards made as I was very late last year. And this year I'm even later getting started! So, if I can make a challenge fit, it calls for another card to add to the stack that is slowly getting taller. So here's card number one...
A bit more emboss resist after last week's challenge! I embossed the snow and stars in clear embossing powder and then inked over in blue. I then die cut a section of my inking using a stitched circle die. I die cut another circle in white and die cut again using a stitched landscape die to create the snow. Before adhering together I stamped the sentiment. The little polar bear's hat was stamped first, then masked before stamping the bear. I coloured with ProMarkers and then fussy cut him out and adhered him to the scene. This was then popped up on 3D foam.

I decided to make a gender neutral birthday card too...
I die cut the stitched rectangle first and then stamped the sentiment using the MISTI to ensure I got a good impression. I die cut two balloons from scraps of patterned paper and added some hand drawn strings before adhering the balloons off the top edge. The panel was then adhered using 3D foam, with a little under the balloons too. Super easy!
