Beary Christmas

Hello there!  It's fall and although I like the cooler weather, I usually skip the whole fall card making season (Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc.). I head right over to Christmas. 😅  So I have a really easy CAS Christmas card to kick off the week.

.


I started by die cutting a scallop rectangle from Neenah cardstock.  Stamped the bear with Memento black ink, then masked it.  


Masked a horizon line and added Peacock Feathers distress ink with a mini blending tool for the background.  Removed masks and coloured image with Copics.  


White heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip.  Mounted the panel with fun foam to a white card base, then added clear shimmer to the bow to finish.  


Easy-peasy!  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week.

Your bear and his Christmas package are just darling, Trina! As always, your coloring is fantastic and I love the way you did that horizontal blended line! It adds so much to what I'm sure will be another winning card for you!! Hugs, Darnell

An adorable bear is coming out of the box!? I'd love to get this king of gift!! :-) Your coloring definitely makes this bear cute! The shading is "phamtastic"! And what a great idea to add the soft and beautiful horizontal line to ground the image.
