Baby, it's cold outside
There is a new challenge up on the Simply Create Too Challenge Blog with the topic "Baby, it's cold outside". Go check it out, look at all the great projects by the Design Team members and come play along! I made a card with this adorable polar bear by Some Odd Girl and used the perfectly matching sentiment from a Lawn Fawn set.
First, I stamped the polar bear with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock as well as the hat, the scarf, and the pole. Then, I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers (I actually had to google how to color that pole...) (polar bear: Liquid Appliqué, hat/scarf: GT2, GT3, pole: ). I also used some Glossy Accents on the polar bear's nose and on the top part of the pole to make it a bit more "metal like" (if you know what I mean :) ).
For the background I used a piece of watercolor card stock and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I think it is a beautfiul soft blue color that is perfect for sky backgrounds. I made sure not to cover the whole piece but to get lighter to the top. Using some white scrap card stock, I cut a few snow hills adhered it to the watercolor piece. On the hill in the front I stamped the sentiment "baby, it's cold outside" with Classic Cherry die ink. After glueing the hat and scarf to the polar bear I placed him and the pole on/behind the snow hills.
To give the card a bit more contrast I wanted to use a larger red background panel. I used foam tape to give the front panel more dimension and also included red and white bakers twine which perfectly matches the red and white pole. I wrapped it around the front panel a couple of times and bound it to a little bow. I adhered the bow in place with a tiny glue dot. Finally, I adhered the front panel on top of the background panel.
