Merry Christmas, My Friend

Hello, again!  It's Andrea back with you to share a cute CAS Christmas card (Say that three times fast!).  When I saw Reverse Confetti's Christmas Bear stamp set, I HAD to have it!  I absolutely love Christmas, and I love bears, so put them together and - BAM! - I'm all in! (Yeah, breaking out a little Emeril today, peeps.)

This card came together super quickly, yet still turned out so adorable.  (Talk about win, win!)  I stamped the bear and tree from Christmas Bear with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics.  Naturally, I had to add some details with my white gel pen, and I also added some sparkle with a glitter gel pen.

Eek!  That bear is so darn cute, especially with that shiny nose (compliments of Glossy Accents).  To create my background, I ink-blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over MFT Stamps' Geometric Grid Stencil.  I love the subtle interest a stencil and some ink give!

I trimmed down my background panel and popped a strip of silver glitter cardstock behind it.  Onto black cardstock, I stamped a sentiment from Christmas Bear with Versamark and heat-embossed it in white.  I used the sentiment strip to "ground" my images, so they're not floating in space.  To finish the card, I scattered on a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great week!
