A Cool January Birthday Card

So much fun – a winter card that is not a Christmas card!  Perfect for a friend who lives in Northern Ontario!

Here is my card:

WIP PC Cool Jan Bday Card_watermark

I used one of my favourite embossing folders, Northern Flurry, on the background and couldn’t reist adding some rhinestones to the centres of the snowflakes.  My favourite element though is the cute polar bear from the Zoo Review stamp set.  I’m sure polar bears aren’t that cute if you were to meet one face to face but that’s how I like to think of them.  I used a blender pen to emphasize some of the shadows and to colour the ice below the bear’s feet.  I cut the image out using one of the smallest sized Window Frames framelits.  In order to highlight the stamped image, I sponged the edges and mounted it on top of a card stock square.

All in all, a simple card that allows the polar bear to shine!

Thanks for stopping by!
