The main image is by Lili of the Valley (UK) - James Bear in the Snow. I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Ranger watercolour cardstock and coloured it with Lyra + Faber-Castell watercolour pencils and a #2 round paintbrush. I paper-pieced the hat and scarf using some designer paper from an old retired pad - BoBunny Snowfall. I added some shading with a grey watercolour pencil. The fluffy stuff on the hat and the snow on the ground is Stampendous Cotton Ball White Fun Flock mixed with Crystalina glitter which was glued on using Tombow Mono Multi glue.
The falling snow around the bear is Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops. It is my first time using them and I love the dimension it gives. Now, of course, I want to get more colours ð
I used my Lifestyle Nesting Circle dies and Big Shot for the main image and layers. The other designer papers are also from a retired pad by Echo Park - Winter Park. The snowflakes were diecut from aqua glitter cardstock using my Impression Obsession Small Snowflake Set DIE100F. I added some Kaisercraft Ice Blue Rhinestones to the centres.
The ribbon is from my stash and was attached in two separate elements and the bow itself was tied using my Bow Easy. The sentiment tag is a die by Cuttlebug - Tiny Tags - 37-1222. This die set, although retired, has been one of my most-used dies over the years. The sentiment is by Elzybells (who are no longer in business) from their Mini Messages - Christmas - 20-054 clear set. I added some tiny Molossi light blue rhinestones underneath. The burgundy and light blue base cardstock layers were trimmed to 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools and the dark teal cardstock was trimmed to 1/16".
Once I had finished the card front, I glued it to a white card base using Tombow Mono Multi glue.
