Christmas in February, Part Deux
This is the other set of 2 cards I made for Christmas. I just love that Polar Bear image from Stampin' Up! I got it on ebay, and I wish I knew what it was called, or the name of the set from which it came.
Anyhoo, those cute little bears were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic markers, and cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Curved Rectangles die. It was then matted on white cardstock and backed by Stampin' Up! Night of Navy cardstock.
The starry background paper was purchased last year when I first got into card making. I don't know who the manufacturer is, but I do know I got it on sale at Joanne's. ;-)
The snow beneath the bears is Twinklets Diamond Dust glitter. It's really sparkly, because it's made from ground glass! The picture really doesn't do it justice. I read about it on Bev's blog, called All the things I love. (BTW, I tested it by rubbing some between my fingers, and didn't get any shards stuck in me.)
