'Tis the Season Polar Bear Christmas Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. Today I am sharing Christmas card I created using the new Polar Bear and Snowflakes die sets from the Joset Designs releases earlier this month.

Here is how I created my card:


Step 1 - 
  • Using the 4 3/4 inches square from the Dashing Squares die set, die cut a square from the snowflake patterned paper included in the ModaScrap It's Christmas Time 12 x 12 Patterned Paper Pack.
  • Using the 5 inch square from the Dotted Scallop Squares die set, die cut a square from brown cardstock.
  • Create a card base from red cardstock that measures 5 1/2 inches x 11 inches. Score at 5 1/2 inches and fold in half to create a 5 1/2 inch square top folding card.

Step 2 - 
  • Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the front of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. 
  • Die cut the large and small snowflakes from the Snowflakes die set. 
  • Remove the protective backing from the adhesive and cover with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish the glitter into the adhesive using your finger to bring out the maximum shine of the adhesive.
  • Sponge blue ink around the edges of the snowflake.

Step 3 - 
  • Using the Polar Bear die set die cut the following from White Velvet Adhesive Sheet: Head; Body; Front Legs; Paw Overlay and Snout.
  • Die cut the solid back paws from grey cardstock
  • Die cut eyes and nose from black cardstock
  • Die cut inner ears from pink cardstock
Note: for a stronger image die cut the head, body, front legs. paw overlay and snout again this time from white cardstock and adhere the Velvet sheet die cut to the white cardstock die cuts.
  • Sponge blue ink around all body parts.
  • Assemble Polar Bear using foam tape for the body parts and glue for the eyes, nose and inner ears.
  • Add mouth detail to snout using black marker.

Step 4 - 
  • Adhere the small snowflake to the top right hand side of the card using glue in the centre part of the snowflake
  • Attach the large snowflake to the bottom left hand side of the card using foam tape where the polar bear will be placed so tape won't be seen.
  • Attach the polar bear to the large snowflake using foam tape.
Step 5 - 
  • Using black ink stamp the sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Clear Stamp set to a strip of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim ends at an angle.
  • Sponge blue ink around edges of sentiment strip.
  • Attach over the small snowflake using foam tape.

Step 6 - Inside of Card:
  • Using the 4 3/4 inch square die from the Dashing Squares die set, die cut a square from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using the 4 3/4 inch square die from the Dashing Squares die set, die cut the snowflake patterned paper included in the ModaScrap It's Christmas Time 12 x 12 Patterned Paper Pack to create a 1 1/2 inch strip.
  • Adhere a strip of brown cardstock to the top of the snowflake patterned paper and then adhere this to the bottom of the white square.
  • Using the 5 inch square from the Dotted Scallop Squares die set, die cut a square from brown cardstock.
  • Layer squares to each other and adhere to inside of card.



    Step 7 - 
    • Create a large snowflake as we did in step 2 for the front of the card. Adhere to the centre of the card.
    • Using the smallest circle from the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a circle from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sponge around the edges using blue ink.
    • Stamp the "Be Merry" sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Clear Stamp set using black ink. 
    • Add the three snowflakes to the sentiment panel using blue ink.
    • Adhere sentiment panel to centre of the snowflake.

    Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
