Polar Friends!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Polar Friends – TT058 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and All Hearts – HDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Sharing Christmas with loved ones is always something to look forward to.

Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 5.25″ x 4″ rectangle from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto it. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some snow to the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. Stickles – Diamond was added to the ice cubes and Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the candy cane. Stickles – Star Dust was added to all of the snow. This was then set aside to dry.

Once everything was dry, I popped up the image onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper cut and folded to 5.5″ x 4.25″ with U-Line double-sided tape. I stamped out the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the hearts with Copics and tinted the white paper with Lawn Fawn – Peacock ink. To finish off the card, I popped this up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
