Winter wishes

New December 'Take It Make It' challenge started at Craft Stamper Magazine blog last Friday. Theme this month is 'Snow and Ice':
Create seasonal makes, or use lots of white product! Think gesso, embossing paste, white paint, embossing powders and glitters. Remember to include rubber/polymer stamping on your project somehow, somewhere!

One lucky winner will get an amazing prize by Craftbox: Worth playing for, isn't it!

I decided to make a fairly simple card with stamped, die-cut and stencilled elements. Here's my take:

I started with stamping the little bear on white cardstock, and colouring the image with Promarkers. Actually I stamped and coloured three bears, as I was not sure which colour combination I would use for my card. I cut out the images and stamped and heat-embossed the hats and scarves.

The trees are die-cut using a lovely Sizzix/Tim Holtz die set. I cut the trees twice; once from white cardstock, and once from dark green cardstock. I cleaned the die carefully, keeping all the tiny cut pieces on my crafting table. The next task was to assemble the tree again, placing green die-cut pieces on the white tree and vice versa.
When all pieces were put back I secured them with a strip of removable clear tape. I turned the trees around abd spread glue on the back. Glue held the little pieces nicely in place.

The trees on the background were stencilled using the die-cut leftover piece as stencil. For inking the background hills I used a simple hand-cut, wavy mask.
I finished the card by stencilling white texture paste on the bottom of the card.

Isn't the bear stamp set by Studio Calico cute!

Wishing you a wonderful day. Hope play along our fun challenge!
