Polar Bears

Here is a Christmas card that is not very traditional but I really like it! I watched a U tube presentation of Heather Summers and she made this card. I cannot get to her blog as it is a Typepad one and for some reason my server will not allow me to get to Typepad blogs - grrrr.
I just thought these punched bears were so cute and I always jump at the opportunity to use my punches. I used SU confetti white card hence the specks you see.

The SU set I used was Snow Swirled and the background card and ink was Bordering Blue. I sponged the edges with Basic Grey and lightly distressed them. The baby bear's head is raised with Dimensionals. A very simple card to make and it is a lot of fun too.

My craft room is still very upside down but I am taking my time and packing things where they will be staying permanently - well more or less as I am sure I will shift some things around later. I will post a photo when I have it all tidied up. We are waiting for the builder to come for a day to put up my bench top and drawers and overhead cupboards in there.

Jean! Thanks so much for sharing this! I am just nuts over this card and plan on making one today for my Wednesday Evening Post this week. You did such a great job with it and it is certainly one of the cutest cards I've seen this season. I actually went to see the video, then went to her blog and found the actual originator of this card. You can visit her here:

As you can see, it is a blogspot blog so you should be able to see it. Thanks again for sharing! Best, Curt
