Continuing my tradition of posting Christmas cards on Sunday, here you go! I'm entering this for the Christmas Card Challenge blog. Since I pre-post my cards and the Christmas Challenge is posted on Sundays, also, I don't have the opportunity to do the specialized challenge. However, the main challenge is to just make a Christmas card. Edited to add: My card this week fits the challenge theme which is to use an "old, neglected stamp." I've had this stamp set for a long time and haven't used it in years. Plus, I was the random winner from last week! I win a Sparkle stamp. Very cool! Thanks!!
I saw a card in the SplitCoastStampers gallery using this set by Stampin' Up! and it reminded me to use it. I stamped the bears on a sparkly cardstock and cut them out. I colored their scarves, then I mounted the bears on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on the sparkly paper, also. I matted with Pacific Point and also added the strip, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. (I think you can see the sparkle better on this picture.)
Also, Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
