I still cant believe the sunny weather we are having can you. I don’t mind admitting I am finding it very hard to make Christmas cards in such warm sunshine. But here is a lovely stamp from Hobby Art made from grey rubber A lady Pm’d me on Facebook and asked me to recommend a nice easy stamp to use for quick Christmas cards Fergus the polar bear came to mind as he is a quick stamp and lovely to use.
I used a Momento Inkpad in London Fog to stamp him out onto white pearlised card-stock. I than heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder I added a few snowflakes and then heat embossed those in white and then added a little frantage to them just to make them glisten. I coloured the scarf in pro-markers, coloured his nose black and put a small dollop of glossy accents on it to he will have a shiny nose. swirled the back in pale blue with a stencil brush and added a little blue dotty ribbon and matted it with silver mirri-card. The card I used comes embossed with snow flakes so all I did was to rub a little pewter gilding wax over the raised images to make them stand out. Then stuck the topper to the card added a Happy Christmas sentiment and there it was job done ….I quick easy card that would be ideal for a beginner or if you have a batch to do for school or table top sale.
