Polar Friends

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

Our Christmas dies are still available in the online store.  We have Christmas Part 1 (22 new designs), Christmas Part 2 (21 new designs) and Christmas Part 3 (11 new designs).

Today, for your viewing pleasure I have a card featuring the new Polar Friends die. It's one of those whimsical dies from the Christmas Part 3 collection that makes for a really cute Christmas card. I kept it more on the simple side. If you have this die and are looking for an idea, this one would be easy to recreate multiples of. Let's get started on some details of how I created my card.

Design Steps:
My card this week started with the color challenge #822 on Splitcoaststampers. The colors are bright and I thought the polar friends would look great sporting these colors. 
magenta madness, granny apple green basic black

I decided to emboss my background with an evergreen embossing folder. I used a designer paper in the granny apple green color. I liked the ombre appeal of the paper and it made for a quick background design. 

Next, I cut my images in the challenge colors. I used designer paper for their hats and the bears scarf. It just added to the fun loving appeal of this card. 

I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the embossed panel to the white card base with double sided tape. Cut a snowy slope for the polar friends to frolic around on. They are a perky little bunch after all! The slope is attached with dimensional adhesive.

White card base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Embossed panel: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"  

 The images are also attached with dimensional adhesive. I wanted them to be lifted slightly from the embossed background. 

To complete my card, I stamped a playful sentiment and added some green glitter enamel dots. I scattered a few snowflake sequins in the sky and my card is complete. 

Well, that's it for me for this week. I will be back on Monday with another Christmas card. See you then!
