Warm Hearted Friends

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne with you today.  Today's card uses the adorable polar bears from the Christmas Release Part 1.  I think these are just about everyone's favorite, they are so darn cute!  I chose to use them today as a friendship card rather than a holiday card.
I cut all pieces from white card stock and used Distress Oxide ink to color them.
 I assembled all the pieces.  Although I assembled the hat, I ultimately decided not to use it.
For the background I used the same pink inks and a stencil made from the second smallest circle of the Double Stitched Rectangle set.  I blended an area larger than I needed so I could adjust where to cut the rectangle.  I splattered the blend with water to give the feel of falling snow.
I cut four panels, two using the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and two using the second largest die so that the panels stacked would be a bit thicker than regular card stock.
The message is stamped centered on the bottom of an A2 card base in grey ink.  After adhering the panels I glued down the snow and birch trees. 
I wanted the birch trees to go to the top of the rectangle and the snow to be at the bottom.  You can see that there is a gap here.  But that will get covered up by the bears.
The bears are popped up using foam dots.  This was a simple card to make that is wonderful for a good friend.  These little bears are perfect for almost every occasion!


Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to check out all the new Christmas dies from both releases in the online store!

I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
