Polar Bear SCS Challenge

My card for today is for the Limited Supplies Challenge #187on SplitCoastStampers. Today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card with a “critter” and no embellishments other than ribbon. Oops, maybe I wasn’t allowed to use glitter!

My main image is two polar bears from the retired Stampin’ Up! set Polar Bears. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Pacific Point. I used Versafine Black Onyx to stamp the image on Whisper White, and I also stamped it on Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point. I embossed with detail black embossing powder. I cut out the scarves from the Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point and glued them on the bears. The circle is cut and embossed with Nestabilities and the scalloped circle is also Nestabilities. The “snow” is from JoAnn’s, and it’s just called “glitter” and “Crystal. It’s quite coarse and not too sparkly, so I added a tiny sprinkle of silver glitter to it. I embossed the bottom of the card with a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and scored a couple lines above it with my trusty Scor-Pal. The image panel is popped up on dimensional squares.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
