Christmas Bears

Happy Saturday to everyone.  Its very dull outside at the moment here but quite mild.  The perfect day for crafting.

Today's card features a Christmas Bears die cut image from Lili of the Valley  I have cut the image as a circle and mounted on lovely Christmas snowflake paper from my stash and embossed further snowflakes onto the card using Snowflakes stamps from Butterfly Kisses and white/glitter embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges:

I have used two new cutting dies from Memory Box to decorate the front of the card - Frosty Border and Flowering Christmas Tree.  The images are glittered and decorated with little pearls.  A fabulous Happy Birthday Ribbon has been used from Crafty Ribbons.  Flowers are from my stash and I think from Wild Orchid Crafts and these have also been glittered and I have used a cute little silver Christmas Tree Charm.  The greeting on the front of the card is Happy Christmas to match the ribbon.

The image has been mounted on the inside of the card.  Glitter and a snow marker pen have been used on the image.  Papers and embossing match the outside of the card and glittered Frosty Border die cuts have again been used.   I have cut a bordered circle in the front of the card and you view the image, mounted on the inside of the card through this circle.

A closer view of the super cute image.

The back of the card featuring matching paper, this has not been embossed and a distressed die cut panel has been mounted for recording a seasonal greeting.

Thank you so much for reading this post.  I hope you like this card.  The sun has just come out and now its time for gardening.

Sending warmest  wishes to all.
