North Pole Greetings

With the arctic chill in the air, no wonder I started thinking about polar bears!

I had my stencils out the other day...causing havoc and mayhem and generally messiness as always.  I got thinking about one-layer cards and just went from there!


I took this sweet bear from RRD's Getting Grizzly and made him the center of my stenciled background.  I stamped him onto my card with Memento ink, colored him with copic markers (greys for him and blue for the snow) and then masked him and the sentiment with a bit of scrap I had cut using my oval cutter.

I laid my stencil over the card and started sponging with a light blue distress ink. I added smaller blotches of medium blue and finally little splotches of dark blue until I achieved the look I liked. Voila!  One-layer Christmas card!


Here's the whole thing!

Stamps: Cheery Bear from Getting Grizzly and sentiment 
from Christmas Cheer (Rogue Redhead Designs)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Over at Rogue Redhead Designs, we have Getting Grizzly on sale as part of our Rogue's Choice November bundle.  It is paired with our useful plate of mix-and-match sentiments, Bits and Pieces.

The Merry Christmas sentiment comes from Rogue Redhead's Christmas Cheer plate which is on sale for $10.00US until the end of November.

To see more of my stenciled cards, head on over to the RRD blog.

Have a great day!
