I love Hump Day Sketches! Today we are doing a sketch from Sketch Saturday. It is a fun and easy sketch that you can use for all occasions. Today we are doing two Holiday Cards.

Our first card is using the Beary Cute Bundle.   I love polar bears and I won't tell you about how I feel about global warming.   Any animal that loves the Arctic, freezing water, and
takes good care of their babies is an animal I fall in love with!  

Isn't this card so Cute!   You can see how you can dress up this bear!   I used Balmy Blue for the card base.   Then I used a piece of Beary Christmas DSP.   I took my Wink of Stella and sprinkled it over the card, added Gold embossing powder, and then heat set it!   I loved the white sprinkles it had in it but adding the gold just makes it feel like being in the North Pole area where the skies are blue and you can see the stars.   

Real Red cardstock is the stripe I used.   I wanted to give it some texture so I embossed it with a Striped embossing folder.   The bears come from a sheet of the Beary Christmas DSP.   I used the 1-3/4 punch to get the image I wanted.   I wanted it it look like they were standing on an iceberg so using the light Balmy Blue Stampin Blends, I did my best to make an iceberg.   I tied a bow using the Night of Navy & Gold Glittered Ribbon.   It is beautiful!   


Balmy Blue:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4
Beary Christmas DSP: 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White: 4" x 5-1/4", Scrap paper for 1-3/4" punch
Real Red: 1" x 4-3/4"

The inside is just sweet... Mama and her baby!   

Card number two is done with Very Vanilla cardstock and Gold Foil paper.   I wanted to do a technique I haven't used in a long time using Gilded Leafing!

I enjoyed the way this card turned out.   It looks expensive but is really easy to make!   I used the Stars at Night Hybrid Embossing Folder for the background.   Gold Foil at the strip and stamped Noel from the Joy of Noel stamp set.   

When doing the Noel.  I first stamped with Versa Mark, added heat & stick Powder - only heat this until the powder turn glossy - then I used the Gilded Leafing and covered the Noel area.   I took my brush and brushed off the extra leafing.  I love the look of this card.

I finished it off with the Gold Festive Pearls.   It's a very nice card!

On the inside, I used versa mark and added Gold embossing powder.   I used a bough from the Joy of Noel Dies.   Fun card to create!   


Very Vanilla: 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" scored at 4-1/4", 4" x 5-1/4", scrap for sentiment and punch
Gold: 1" x 4-1/4", scrap for layering (5/8" x 2-3/8")
